KARACHI: After netizens lauded the police officer of Sindh for sending his daughter as a bait to get the victim’s baby released and get the kidnappers arrested, the Sindh government has also hailed the plan and its execution of ASI Muhammad Bakhsh of Kashmore district to trap the suspects.
The provincial government spokesperson Murtaza Wahab, addressing a press conference in Karachi on behalf of the government, announced reward for the police officer and his daughter and rehabilitation of the victims, mother and daughter.
To a query, he said the government had decided to provide job to the mother, education to the daughter and best medical facilities for their treatment.
About 20 days ago, Tabassum Bibi, a resident of Karachi, went to Kashmore along her four-year-old girl, Aleesha, to find a job that was promised by the suspect, who subjected them to sexual assault for more than two weeks, after their arrival. Later, they freed Tabassum on the condition that she would arrange another girl for them and after that they would release her minor girl as well.
When the mother reached police station and told the officer her story. ASI Muhammed Bakhsh offered service of her daughter and asked her to tell them that she had arranged a girl for them. The police officer’s daughter went with her to get them out of their dens. Following which, police raided and arrested the suspects right away.
Murtaza Wahab said if Muhammed Bakhsh Bhulro and his daughter would not have showed their personal heroics, police might not have been able to arrest the suspect.
He said the Sindh government would request the federal government to grant the highest police award, Quaid e Azam Police Medal, to the police officer for his bravery. While, the provincial government would itself give him the gallantry award, he said. He said the centre would also be contacted to grant his daughter the highest civil award for her fearlessness.
Advisor to Chief Minister for Law, Environment & Coastal Development Barrister Murtaza Wahab said an FIR on behalf of the woman had been registered against the suspect and police had recorded the confessional statement before the magistrate court. The anti-terrorism court has also taken cognizance of the incident, he maintained.
“As of now, the suspect has confessed to his crime. So the maximum legal action that could be possible would be taken against him,” he said.
All the suspects embroiled in the incident would be brought to justice, the Pakistan Peoples Party leader said.
