The kidnapped child was recovered from Kala Pull area, police confirmed. Police arrested two suspects, including a woman, for being linked to the kidnapping. 

The suspects and the toddler were shifted to the Preedy Police Station so the legal requirements of the case could be fulfilled. 

IG Sindh and AIG Karachi had formed a team to recover the child. The child had been kidnapped from Jahangir Park on Sunday. 

Police confirmed the existence of a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage in which the child can be seen being kidnapped by a 'family' — a man, woman and a child.

The toddler and his parents had travelled from Ranchore Line to Saddar — where Jahangir Park is located — to enjoy the evening

The child got away from his parents who started searching for him in the park as well as its surroundings. The CCTV footage was obtained after police at the Preedy station registered a first information report (FIR) on behalf of the missing child's father. 

Police also made use of other CCTV cameras in Jahangir Park's surroundings. The kidnappers, according to the obtained footage, left the park at 7:30PM and hired a rickshaw before going to Atrium Mall in Saddar and then headed for Shahrah-e-Faisal.
