SUKKUR: Ghotki police have failed to trace out three hostages who were kidnapped around 10 days ago from Katcha area of the district. Sobal Lolai, Allah Bux Lolai and Farooque Ahmed were kidnapped by some unidentified people when they went for hunting in the area. Relatives of the abductees said that more than 100 people of Lolai tribe and policemen chased armed men fleeing towards Teghani area when they opened fire on them. They alleged that police officials had ordered them to go back and assured them that the hostages would be returned in few days. They demanded Sindh Police Inspector General IG AD Khawaja, Sukkur DIG and Ghotki SSP to help trace the hostage as their relatives were fearing for their lives.
