Missing Karachi teenager yet to be recovered

The case of the mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl from Karachi’s Al-Falah area is yet to be solved, as police continue to search for her.

The 14-year-old had gone missing around six days ago. Her father has also said that if his daughter is not recovered then he and his family will take their own lives in front of the Governor House, according to Geo News.

After she had gone missing, her father filed a police complaint, The News reported Wednesday, with him saying 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 publication.

The girl has been missing for nearly a week, but there has been no clue about her whereabouts since she had stepped out of her home to dispose of garbage.

A team of the Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) also met the girl’s father. AVCC chief Zubair Nazir Shaikh said they have formed three teams, and they are working on getting CCTV camera footage to trace the girl’s whereabouts.

A police official said that an investigation into the incident had been launched, with the footage from the CCTV cameras installed in the area being examined to trace the whereabouts of the girl.
