HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): The dead body of an abducted child was found and a man detained on the charge of kidnapping the victim, officials said on Saturday.

The 9-year-old’s body was recovered on Friday evening in the Jabrail area of the 12th municipality district of Herat City, the deputy police chief said.

Col. Abdul Hameed Hameedi told Pajhwok Afghan News the child’s neck bore signs of suffocation. The victim’s uncle has been arrested for preventing other family members to inform police.

Mohammad Abbas disappeared three days ago on his way to school. Later, his family was asked for a ransom of one million afghanis (id="mce_marker"8,529) for the minor’s release, said a resident of the village, Ali Raza.
