Ukrainian woman reunited with husband

RAWALPINDI: The Ukrainian woman, who was recovered from a village in Tharparkar, Sindh, after three years was reunited with her husband in Rawalpindi on Wednesday.

The police also brought the accused Abdul Manaf to the city and are interrogating him.

Katrina, a mother of five, was allegedly kidnapped from her home in Mandra by one of her husband’s relatives on July 17, 2013. Her father-in-law, Nazir Ahmed, lodged a kidnapping case on July 18, 2013.

After her arrival in Rawalpindi, the woman was taken to the Ukrainan embassy where she recorded her statement. She then appeared before City Police Officer Israr Ahmed Abbasi on Wednesday and gave her statement.

She informed the CPO that her husband was picked up by the police in early 2013.

The same year one of her husband’s relatives came to her house and told her that her husband was imprisoned in Mirpurkhas jail and promised to get him released and took her to Karachi. Her husband was, however, released from Haripur Jail the same year when she went missing.

Regional Police Officer Mohammad Wisal Fakhar Sultan Raja told Dawn that the woman had been recovered by a police team led by SP Saddar Ghais Gul and brought back to Rawalpindi.

He said it was yet to be ascertained whether she had gone to Sindh with the accused of her own will or was forcibly detained there.

The woman is expected to be produced before the court of an area magistrate to record her statement on Thursday.­
