The main suspect in the Dua Mangi kidnapping case fled from Karachi police’s custody who brought the alleged killer to a mall for shopping, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

Accused Zohaib Qureshi who was wearing neat and clean clothes entered the shopping mall on Tariq Road from the front door and fled from the backdoor. 

The 24News TV channel got hold of the CCTV footage which clearly showed Qureshi fleeing.

Now the question has been raised about the police performance – either the accused tricked the police and fled or it was laxity on the part of the law-enforcers to let him go.

According to details, court police took Qureshi and others from jail for appearance in court and on return when they counted the prisoners Qureshi was absent.

Sources said the policemen took Qureshi for shopping from where he made his escape good.

The police now said they were conducting raids to rearrest Qureshi. Ferozabad Police have taken two officers in to custody.

Qureshi along with three others were arrested in the Dua Mangi abduction case.

Dua Mangi was kidnapped in November 2019 from Karachi’s DHA. The suspects also shot her friend who was with her at the crime scene.

In October 2021, Mangi had identified three suspects including Qureshi as her kidnappers during a hearing at an Anti-Terrorism Court. She had said that she could identify only Qureshi, Ali, and Raja as they were the ones who had bundled her into a car and shot Fatah for trying to save her.
