City police in a successful operation on Friday arrested three accused involved in kidnapping of a child in Peshawar.

Police said that one Saeedullah son of Rawil registered an FIR on June 03, 2013 in the Police Station Mechani Gate and informed that his son Tanveer Ali Shah was kidnapped by some unknown kidnappers when he was on way back to home from tuition centre.  He said that the kidnappers had demanded Rs1.2 million ransom money for the release of his son. He said that after paying the amount, the kidnapers released his son.

After receiving information, police interrogated tuition teacher of the child Waqas son of Fazal Najeer, who confessed his involvement in the kidnapping saga. Upon his interrogation, police also arrested two other accused identified as Abid son of Abdul Salam, resident of Peshtakhara and Wazir son of Khan Mohammad, resident of Peshawar.  Making excuse to police, the teacher Waqas said that he kidnapped the child as his parents were not paying tuition fee to him.

Police registered the FIR against the three accused and started further investigation in this connection.
