Dua Mangi case: Prime suspect Zohaib Qureshi arrested from Kandhot

The primary suspect in the kidnapping of Dua Mangi was captured while attempting to flee Sindh for Punjab.

While screening near Kandhkot’s Karampur Link Road, the suspect attempted to flee when police opened fire. He was then detained and sent to the hospital in an injured state.

Police ordered a suspicious vehicle to come to a halt on Karampur Road, but the driver opened fire. After a gunfight, he was arrested. Police stated the accused was involved in kidnapping for ransom and other crimes, adding that six mobile phones were recovered from his possession.

Dua Mangi was kidnapped by Zohaib Qureshi and his collaborators in Karachi’s Defense Housing Authority (DHA) neighbourhood on November 30, 2019, and was released after her father paid the kidnappers Rs2.5 million.

Zohaib Qureshi had eluded police arrest in January by duping officials into a false’shopping spree’ near Tariq Road, and he had been on the loose ever since.

A hearing was scheduled for Zohaib Qureshi and his accomplices at the city court. Due to the gross incompetence of constables Naveed and Zafar Habib, who were detained for assisting the lead suspect, he was able to flee.

Dua Mangi was 22 years old when she was kidnapped on November 30, 2019 outside a restaurant in the Defence Housing Authority (DHA).

She was strolling down the street with her colleague Haris Soomro when the kidnappers approached and threatened them both with guns. One of the kidnappers who grabbed the young woman and fled shot Soomro.

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) indicted five individuals, Zohaib Qureshi, Muzaffar, Tariq, Waseem Raja, and Fayyaz Qureshi, in January 2021, for allegedly kidnapping Dua and demanding a ransom.
