Victim Maria Bibi daughter of Ashraf Masih (late) was working the field when Amjad cast bad eye on her. At night time, Amjad along with his accomplices arrived at Maria’s house at around 3:00 am and abducted her on gunpoint. Maria’s grandfather Shahab Masih and mother Bushra Bibi are pleading for the girls’ recovery, however. “Let my voice be heard in front of the Chief Minister of Punjab,” said Shahab Masih.

Bushra Bibi and her brother Boota Masih have urged the Chief Minister of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif, RPO Multan and DPO Vehari to take immediate steps in this matter. “If our daughter is not rescued from the clutches of the landlord’s son we will prefer death over life,” victimized Christian family said.

Maria’s mother said that we have already pleaded the authorities but they all seem to be powerless, as Amjad’s father Niaz Mughal is an influential man in the area. Boota Masih said that although an application has been submitted at local police station, yet no FIR of the incident has been registered. “No action has been taken in order to recover our daughter,” he said.
