Kidnappers snatch son of SHC CJ in Karachi
KARACHI: Masked men kidnapped the son of a senior Pakistani judge in Karachi, police said on Tuesday, suspecting the victim could be used as a bargaining chip in negotiations to free imprisoned militants.
Awais Ali Shah, the son of Sindh High Court Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, was abducted outside a supermarket in the city on Monday, according to police. Eyewitnesses told officers that Shah, a lawyer, had put up a fight before being quickly overpowered and thrown into a white getaway car.
“So far it is kidnapping, and my professional assessment is that it is not for ransom,” Allah Dino Khawaja, the police chief in Sindh province told Reuters.
Security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media, said they suspected the kidnappers would offer to free Shah in return for the release of captured militants.
Police did not say why they suspected Shah had been abducted by militants.
Earlier this year, Shahbaz Taseer, the son of slain Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer, was rescued four years after he was kidnapped by militants in the eastern city of Lahore.
Last month, US and Afghan forces freed Ali Haider Gilani, the son of former Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, three years after gunmen abducted him. –Reuters
