While addressing the press conference, Senator Kamran Michael guaranteed that he would employ all his energies in order to recover the missing children, and bring them back to their parents. During the conference, recommendations of development of an inter-provincial mechanism were made in order to curb the abductions. According to the recommended inter-provincial mechanism, once a complaint of child abduction is registered, abductees’ picture and credentials would automatically circulate, in all four provinces which would ensure that they are not moved to other provinces without getting detected.
At the same time, it was stated that by means of unanimity a campaign would be run in order to create consciousness while educating the parents and general public on protection of their children. It was further stated that police will make sure that effect measures are taken to ensure the protection of children, while parents were urged to keep an eye on their children and do not let them out.
