There are conflicting reports about the recovery of teen age girl, Dua Zehra, who went missing a week ago from the Al-Falah area of Karachi. The Karachi police are claiming that the girl has been found in Lahore while the Lahore police are contradicting the news, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.

According to Karachi police, Ms Zehra has been traced in Lahore. 

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah while talking to the media today has also claimed that the police have found the girl.

However, the Lahore police are denying having found Ms Zehra. 

Earlier, the sources said she has reportedly tied the knot with a man named Zaheer Ahmad who is resident of Lahore. 

According to an earlier story, the police have also found the photocopy of Dua Zehra’s Nikah Nama. They took the girl in their custody and were ascertaining the originality of Ms Zehra’s Nikah document. 

The girl reportedly stepped out of her house a week ago to dispose of garbage when she went missing. After the case was highlighted on social media, the Karachi police became active and started pursuing the case rigorously.

Karachi police investigators also conducted a raid in connection with the Dua case in Sanghar district on Thursday but they found another young girl during the raid. The investigators did not find any CCTV footage that could help them solve the case.

Then the cybercrime circle of the Federal Investigation Agency also joined the probe into the ‘mysterious’ kidnapping of the teenage girl. An FIA team visited the girl’s family in order to get digital evidence that could help the police investigators probe the case and recover the girl.

FIA’s CCW head Imran Riaz said that their four-member team, including a forensic expert, technical analyst, female investigation officer and female psychologist visited the house of Dua Zehra Kazmi. He added that the FIA made "emergency contact with Google, Samsung and [an] online gaming platform".

On the other hand, Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh also alleged that the police were not taking the Dua Zehra case seriously.
