Six days on, the case of the mysterious disappearance of a teen girl Dua Zehra from the Al-Falah area of Karachi is yet to be solved as the police continue to search for her.
Dua Zehra Kazmi, 14, reportedly went missing on April 16 from the Golden Town area of Al Falah. Police registered a case and launched an investigation.
The ill-fated mother of the missing person has also said that if her daughter is not recovered then she and her family will take their own lives in front of the Governor’s House, according to Geo News.
“I want my daughter alive. I am a mother. I will not accept her body like Zainab [Ansari] and I will keep the body outside the Governor House if she is found dead,” the mother said.
Following Dua’s disappearance, her father filed a police complaint and said that he did not have enmity with anyone. “My daughter wasn’t even going to school for the past one and a half years,” her father told The News.
He said that they lived on the first floor, explaining that his daughter had gone down to the ground floor to dump the garbage. However, she never returned.
After the case was highlighted on social media, Karachi police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon visited the girl’s home to assure her family of complete cooperation on part of the law enforcement agency.
Fake news downplays the case
“The news running on the media about the recovery of my daughter from Sanghar is fake. Even the girl seen in the CCTV footage going on a Suzuki vehicle is also the daughter of my neighbor who was going to work when she was captured on CCTV footage,” he clarified.
He said that there was a conspiracy to downplay his daughter’s case by running such fake news on the media. “But I am telling you I will not allow anyone to ignore my daughter’s case,” he said.
The father added that a girl recovered during a raid in Sanghar was not his daughter. She went missing from the Old City area of Karachi and the initial investigations revealed that she had willingly left the house.
Earlier in the day, some media sections reported that the girl seen in CCTV footage was Dua who had willingly left the house. These reports claimed that mobile phone records, school records, and versions of her neighbors, friends, and family members suggested that she had left her home apparently for freewill marriage. However, the family denied all such news and termed it a conspiracy against them.
Meanwhile, the kidnapping case has also been registered on Zainab Alert. There has been no clue about her whereabouts since she stepped out of her home to dispose of garbage.
