Malawi deports Pakistan kidnapper Shahzad Khan

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services has deported a Pakistan national, Shahzad Khan, for kidnapping a five-year-old child of Asian origin in December last year.

The department’s Public Relations Officer, Wellington Chiponde, said Khan was deported and was flown to Pakistan on July 31 this year.

“I can confirm that Khan left the country and at the same time he has been declared a prohibited immigrant under section 4(I) of the Immigration Act,” said Chiponde.

Khan finally deported

Recently, the Ministry of Homeland Security cancelled Khan’s permanent resident permit and ordered his deportation.

But the Pakistani obtained a court injunction to stop his deportation. In retaliation, the department applied for the lifting of the injunction to pave the way for his ouster.

This High Court in Blantyre granted this wish on July 28, 2021, and ordered for his immediate deportation.

On December, 17, 2020, the Blantyre Magistrate Court sentenced Shahzad Khan together with two other Pakistanis, Hamza Akbar and Lehrasib Khan, to 48 months imprisonment after being found guilty of kidnapping a five-year-old Asian child contrary to section 263 of the penal code.

The two were deported to their home country on June 18.

FOSEKIthe offence was committed in Malawi. He was supposed to serve his sentence at Maula. After his sentence then deport him. A Malawi he will be back to Malawi with dzina Lina and relocate to another city. I feel Maula pris2 is for poor Malawians only.
