Abducted child found, Police arrest 7 suspects from Pakistan: ‘Let them face the law in Malawi no deportation’

An abducted child of Asian extract has been found just days after he was taken away from Mpingwe in Blantyre and police have arrested seven people including the master minder, the son in-law of the father of the five-year-old boy.

The suspects arrested for abducting the child

Tahil Shail was abducted on December 11 and the abductors were demanding ransom from the father of the child, Mohammed Shail, 34, a Malawian of Asian origin who has a string of businesses in both Blantyre and Lilongwe.

Police say they have now arrested Hanza Akbar, 23, son in-law of Shail and his accomplices Suleman Khan, 36, Faraza Khan, 24, Shazed Khan, 22, all Malawians of Asian origin, Ibrahim Mataya, 21, Malawian and Fahim Azafer, 30, Lehras Khan, 25 all Pakistanis.

The police also say the suspects dumped the boy at a Mosque in Kanjedza.

The law enforcers say they have since seized a Toyota Fortuner vehicle registration number DZ 5044 which was used to kidnap the boy and a Volkswagen vehicle registration number CA 1658 which the suspects used to drop the boy at Kanjedza mosque.

The police say investigations continue to arrest more suspects in the case, which is very alien and rare in Malawi.

Meanwhile, the Asian community is seeking justice on the suspects and watching the matter closely that there should be no corruption to have the suspects deported but get the punishment in the country’s jail if found guilty and convicted.

Ma judge aku Malawi chibukhu amawerenga chija dzikuto dzonse dzida lembadwa NOT GUILTY, kwa amwenye.

They are too corrupt shaaaa… mudapitako? Mudzakhale ndi mulandu mudzawona mukakhala wosauka.They are not protecting the interest and security of the citizens or country.
We have these people some are good some are criminal… ngati mudakhalako ku UK or America mudziwa nokha kuti awa akadawatani. Pakistan amaphedwa olo life in side.

You must refrain from saying ANWEMWE that’s pure racist. I’m a Malawian living abroad and when I left my country I didn’t take a single tambala from the country.

Who let them into the country in the first place, did they fly and ended up in the city? It’s the corrupt officials you need to put the blame on. Theses lot must be in prison, their citizenship revoked and DEPORTED back to their country of origin. End off!

Let them face the Malawi laws,the initial impression was that Malawi natives did this act which is allien to our culture thereby tarnishing the reasonably good name of Malawi. The courts must speed up this case and I suggest no bail till the case is over and those found guilty serve jail while the acqaacquitted set free.
