The girl came back from school and went outside of home to take sweets from a shop but never came back. The father of Shumaila visited the police station but they delayed the process of lodging the FIR.
The father of girl said; “We have searched the localities, Edhi Homes or other shelters and places, but there is no clue to my daughter. We have fear that someone might have kidnapped and abused her. We also feared she might have been murdered her. Police is not taking any serious action for recovery of my daughter and I am very disappointed.”

Two other girls, 7-year-old Mehwish d/o Ramzan, 3-year-old Nisha are still missing and no clue to them has been found yet.
These mysterious disappearances are an alarming situation for police, law enforcement agencies and government. Action speaks louder than words and to save the future of our children, serious actions are need to be taken.
