RPO Mahboob Rasheed addressed the media at his office, shedding light on the details of the case. According to the RPO, the complainant, Muhammad Asghar, informed the city police that his brother, Ali Raza, had gone missing since June 16. The family received a distressing call the next day, informing them of Ali’s alleged abduction. The perpetrators demanded a hefty ransom of Rs700,000 for his safe release. To further intimidate the family, a video was sent showing Ali Raza being subjected to torment, along with a plea for his parents to pay the specified amount, warning of dire consequences otherwise.

City Station House Officer Zeshan Akram subsequently registered a case against the unknown kidnappers under section 365 of the Pakistan Penal Code. To ensure an effective investigation, the RPO appointed ASP Bangal Khan, DSP Rana Iftikhar, and SHO Zeshan Akram, forming a dedicated team.

Utilizing cutting-edge GPS technology, the police successfully traced Ali Raza’s whereabouts and swiftly rescued him from Jalalpur Pirwala. During the investigation, it was revealed that Ali Raza had orchestrated his own kidnapping as a means to acquire funds from his parents.

In a separate incident, the Pakpattan police achieved a significant breakthrough by apprehending the prime suspect, Zaheer Baloch, in a triple murder case involving his wife, Amina Bibi, brother-in-law Saqib, and father-in-law Ghulam Farid. The brutal killings occurred in Sham Kot on June 10. According to Chak Badian SHO Ashiq Abid, Zaheer’s motive behind the murders was his demand for the transfer of his wife’s hereditary land into his name. When his in-laws refused, he resorted to heinous acts of violence. Through the utilization of geofencing technology, a police team successfully apprehended the suspect in Tehsil Minchanabad near the River Sutlej Kacha area.

Shifting the focus to matters of public welfare, the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) launched the distribution of Rs2.781 billion among 309,000 women across the Sahiwal division. Each beneficiary is set to receive Rs9,000, and the distribution is taking place at 25 facilitation centers located in various educational institutions throughout Sahiwal.

To ensure a smooth and secure process, cash distribution centers have been established at public sector urban and rural educational institutions. These centers are staffed by police personnel, district government officials, and BISP representatives, collectively managing the distribution process. Approximately 88,000 women in Sahiwal district, 144,000 in Okara, and 77,000 in Pakpattan will benefit from this cash assistance initiative.

Authorities have assured the public that comprehensive security arrangements have been implemented to safeguard the cash distribution process, underscoring their commitment to ensuring the safety of both the beneficiaries and the officials involved.
