PESHAWAR, June 7: People from Chitral living in Peshawar blocked Sher Shah Suri Road here on Thursday against the kidnapping of a Chitral female student in upper Dir the other day.
The protesters demanded that the government should ensure recovery of the kidnap victim and arrest the kidnappers and bring them justice.
The protest demonstration was led by Jamaat-e-Islamai leader Maulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali. The protesters were carrying banners and placards inscribed with slogans against the district administration.
Zeenat Perveen, daughter of Hakeem Khan, was a student of FSc in Government Degree College in Upper Dir, and lived with a close relative in the district.
After appearing in her examination, she went to Chitral and came back to Dir for viva. She was returning from the college along with another girl when she was abducted. The protesters criticized the ANP-led provincial government for its failure to protect the life and property of the masses.
