A widow was injured as influential landlord unleashed dogs at her for demanding release of her abducted daughter here on Wednesday.

An influential landlord hailing from suburbs of Vehari had abducted 12-year-old daughter of a widow a few days ago. The widow visited the residence of the landlord with demand of the release of her kidnapped daughter but the landlord taunted the lady and unleashed dogs at her leaving her critically wounded.

The victim was shifted to a hospital but the abducted girl has not been rescued yet. The injured lady alleged that despite repeated complaints, the police were neither taking any action against the influential landlord for recovery of her abducted daughter, nor a case was registered. She demanded the chief minister of Punjab and inspector general police (IGP) should take notice and direct action against the accused.
