Last week, dithering with fear, my housemaid told me, "Bibi, hundreds of small children have been kidnapped in Korangi, Qayumabad, Landhi." She lives in Punjab Colony. Not a single case, however, she could report. A similar story was told by a friend living in PECHS. Her housemaid said hundreds of children were abducted from Punjab Colony, Lyari, Saddar. "The maid lives in Essa Nagri, so were cases of kidnapping reported from there? The maid said none.
