Kidnapped Ukranian woman Katrina rescued after 3 years in Pakistan


Karachi, May 23: A 31-year-old Ukrainian woman, who was allegedly kidnapped in Pakistan three years ago, was on Sunday, May 22 rescued during a police raid in Sindh province, police said.

Katrina was found in Katho village near Mithi in Tharpakar district and her alleged abductor was arrested, Sarfaraz Nawaz, SSP, Tharparkar district said.


"A joint team of Rangers and police raided the village following a tip-off that a foreign woman was present there and we found Katrina and also arrested her suspected kidnapper, Abdul Munaf Nohrio," he said.

Katrina could barely speak Urdu and told the law enforcement officials in English that Munaf had kidnapped her from Rawalpindi three years ago and brought her to Tharparkar, the SSP said.

However, Munaf's parents said that their son had married Katrina after the two met on a social networking site.
