NADRA official allegedly ‘kidnapped’ in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: Islamabad police are investigating the alleged kidnapping of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) Deputy Assistant Director Najeebullah.
Asadullah Khan, a resident of Islamabad, filed a First Information Report (FIR) with the Ramna police on January 31, stating that his brother Najeebullah left for his “duty at 9 pm” on January 30 but did not return.
According to the FIR, Asadullah recounted that his brother informed his family the next morning through a WhatsApp call that he was traveling to Peshawar and assured them he would return soon.
Asadullah said that he detected a distressed tone in Najeebullah’s voice during the call and that his brother did not have any friends in Peshawar.
Najeebullah contacted his brother again and he suspected that he was being held against his will. The family is now fearing that he may have been abducted in connection with an ongoing case.
According to sources, NADRA is cracking down on foreign nationals illegally residing in Pakistan who have managed to obtain fake national identity cards.
During a meeting held at the Ministry of Interior, it was revealed that a significant number of non-residents managed to acquire properties worth billions using fake Pakistani identity cards.
A senior police officer shared that an investigation is under way after taking footages from ‘Safe City’ security cameras .
A NADRA’s spokesperson stated that they were monitoring the situation closely and were in contact with the officer’s family.
