The court hearing
Dua’s kidnappers were identified as Muzaffar and Zohaib. In her statement before the court, Dua said Muzaffar and Zohaib along with their accomplices kidnapped her from outside a restaurant in DHA Karachi.
Dua was abducted from Bukhari Commercial Area on the night of November 30. Dua’s friend, Haris Fatah, who was with her at the time, was shot for putting up resistance. She returned home one week after her abduction in November after the payment of ransom.
Several protests were held in Karachi, insisting prompt probe in her case while various conspiracies also surrounded her case.
On March 18, police arrested the suspects in Bisma Saleem and Dua Mangi kidnapping cases. They were initially remanded by the anti-terrorism court on Wednesday for seven days for possessing illegal weapons.
Police presented Muzaffar and Zohaib in the court and asked for their physical remand of 14-days. They said the suspects were known offenders and various cases were registered against them.
