Haris was admitted to Agha Khan University Hospital on the account of serious injuries. The bullet shot at the neck had penetrated into Haris’s chest.
The social media and civil society came forward to protest against Dua Mangi’s abduction.
An FIR was launched against unknown men. 22 witnesses from family members and friends recorded their statements as well. Although there was news of the abductors demanding ransom for Dua Mangi’s release, no concrete details were furnished. The police also suspected a man from the United States who had been pressurizing and threatening Dua Mangi to marry him. Dua Mangi’s father had also accused a man named Muzaffar because Dua once had a fight with him and was abducted shortly after that. Dua Mangi was a law student who studied in the US for some time but returned back to Karachi.
