Seven girl students of a university received injuries when they resisted a daylight attempt by criminals to kidnap them by hijacking their bus in Khairpur on Thursday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Seven accused carrying guns stopped a bus in middle of the road and tried to forcibly take away the girl students of Shah Abdul Latif University at Ranipur National Highway in Khairpur.

The brave girls undeterred by the armed attackers in reaction resisted the attempt to abduct them. They foiled the criminals bid but in their forceful resistance seven of them got injured.

Police sources said one of the accused, Safdar Wasan, is a university student, who along with his friends stopped the bus and tried to abduct the students. The police said accused Safdar was interested only in one girl student, Khushboo Bhatti, and tried to abduct her but failed.

Meanwhile, the fellow girl students were enraged at the incident and they staged a sit-in on the national highway at Ranipur.

According to the police, the injured students have been shifted to a hospital and the area has been cordoned off to hunt down the accused.
