JAFFARABAD - Five children of a Hindu trader were abducted in Dera Allah Yar area of the district on Wednesday.

Deputy Commissioner Jaffarabad Syed Zaffar Ali Shah told APP here that unidentified armed men kidnapped children of a famous local trader Saith Bhoiraj on gunpoint when they were on way to their school. He, however, said the police had found clues that kidnappers had shifted the hostages to some area in Sindh province after the abduction.
