KARACHI: Three suspects wanted in a case of kidnapping a minor were arrested Wednesday night here in the city’s Frere Town area, Geo News reported, citing authorities.
The arrested suspects — including a woman and her two accomplices — had allegedly picked up the two-and-a-half-year-old while she was playing outside her residence, police said.
Consequent to news being run on local channels as well as the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage aired, the suspects brought in the child to the authorities, claiming they had found her.
