Holland; June 2, 2007. Pakistan Christian Congress, Central Council Member, Mr. Watson Gill have expressed grave concern on killing of two Christian children aged 7 and 11, in Karachi.

He termed it target killing as culprits have killed the children but kept on demanding ransom of two million rupees. Two Christian children named Obaid and Sajjid were kidnapped from neighborhood of Christian Town from Korangi area of District East of Karachi, on May 21, 2007. According to PCP correspondents in Karachi, Christian Town is colony of middle class Christians and nor a single family is so rich to pay such a huge amount of ransom but still poor parents of these children managed to arrange Rupees three hundred thousands after negotiation by kidnappers. Reliable sources revealed to PCP that kidnappers killed the children but stayed intact with parents and area community leaders. The missing report of Obaid and Sajjid was lodged with Zaman Town, Korangi, Police Station on May 22, but police neglected to recover them. Police was duly kept informed about the negotiation with kidnappers but no attempt was made to trace cell numbers of kidnappers. Moreover, two dead bodies were found in a bag in vicinity of Zaman Town Police Station on May 31, but parents were not called to identify bodies and police put corps with Edhi Centre as unclaimed deceased. The PCC leaders in Karachi have condemned killing of Christian children and feared it start of target killing of Christians in Pakistan.
