Sindh CM announces Rs. 10 million reward for recovery of kidnapped CJ’s son

, 12:01 PM IST

Karachi: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has announced a Rs. 10 million reward for help leading to the recovery of Awais Ali Shah, the kidnapped son of the Sindh High Court Chief Justice .

Awais was abducted on Tuesday from outside a super market in the Defence Housing Authority area of the city by four armed gunmen.

Police has registered a case against “unknown suspects” for kidnapping Shah but no progress has been made in the search so far.

The motive of the kidnapping remains unclear as no ransom calls have been recieved.

“There are a few clues which may help clearing the picture further but, right now there is nothing credible to determine people and motive behind the incident. The thing which is now turning quite obvious is it’s not a conventional kidnapping for ransom case,” the Dawn quoted a police official as saying.

To discuss the incident and progress for the safe recovery of Shah, Karachi Corps Commander Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar met the Chief Minister at CM House.

On Tuesday, the Sindh Rangers DG had also announced a Rs. 2.5 million reward to solve the case.

Meanwhile, Sindh IG A. D. Khowaja removed SSP-South Dr Muhammad Farooq and Clifton SP on the directives of the Chief Minister for falling short of professional requirements which led to a delay in the reporting of the kidnapping. (ANI)
