CHARIKARinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon):  Police in Parwan province managed to cripple a kidnap gang after eliminating two suspects and managed to rescue a child kidnapped earlier this month. 

Twenty days ago four-year-old Melad was abducted from a wedding ceremony in Tamam, outskirt of Charikar, the capital of central Parwan province, said Gen. Abdurahman Sarjang, the provincial police chief.

Based on intelligence information, police managed to nab on Wednesday night when the kidnappers were trying to transfer Melad to a safe place, but failed to find a suitable hideout for the kid and abandon him in a mosqueinfo-icon in Khalazai area of Bagram district, he added.

While the kidnappers were escaping to Shakerdara, police in the district ordered them to stop their car, but the suspects opened fire. During the shoot-out, police managed to gun down two of the kidnappers and arrested two of the injured abductors.  

Mohammad Akber, the victim’s grandfather, told Pajhwok Afghan News, that the gang had demanded id="mce_marker"50,000 as ransom.

“We don’t have that much assets to pay them, so we reported to the government security forces” he said, and wanted the government to sentence them to death.
