The SSP added that after the fresh false claims by certain people on social media that a 13-year-old-Hindu had been abducted from Badin, he directed the police officials to take the boy into police custody to ensure his full protection.
Sethar said that the boy had been with police officials and was still unwilling to go to his parents. “We, however, will again produce the convert Tanweer aka Teekam Kolhi in the court for his statement to dispel the doubts by certain elements that he was abducted and was forced to the concert.
Sethar shared the fresh statement of Teko in which he said that after converting he would never go to his parents instead want to carry on with his Islamic studies.

The credible sources revealed that the boy decided to a concert after getting sick of the incessant torture by his father. The rights activists talking to this reporter claimed that a boy was to young to decide to quit his religion and embrace Islam adding they demanded to probe the matter so that the Hindu community could not feel unsafe in the country.
