Razaabad police arrested Mohammad Nasir on the first day Sania went missing, Sunday 19th May 2019, but stopped the investigation a day before Eid-ul-fitr.
Sania Masih is the 2nd child of Mason Latif Masih, (39 yrs) and housewife Aasia Masih, (35 yrs) and lived at Khalid Colony Kokalian District, Faisalabad. The couple live in their residence with their other four children, Salman Masih (18 yrs), a trainee tailor, Zeeshan Masih (13 yrs), Nouman Masih (11yrs) , Muskn Masih (9yrs)and their elderly grand-parents.

Sania was last seen when she was at home with her sister and grandparents, Sadeeq Maish (65 yrs) and Sureya Masih (60 yrs), taking out the garbage to a street corner around 2.30pm that afternoon. Mr and Mrs Masih attending the Valima (Wedding party) of a relative after attending church and Sania's brothers were out with their respective friends.
Sureya Masih went searching for her granddaughter, concerned for her safety as she had taken an unexpectedly long time placing garbage outside their home. She raised the alarm after Sania was gone for an unusual length of time (around 20 minutes) by calling her parents home to help her find the missing child.
Sania's father and mother returned home quickly within 30 mins of the call, hurriedly excusing themselves before the meal was served at the party. They rushed around hectically seeking any information on their missing daughter. While they continued the search, neighbours Babar Ali and Ashraf Paul, told him that they witnessed Sania being dragged by two men, Mohammad Naveed Habib (28 yrs) and Pervaiz (30 yrs), who forced her to sit between them on a motorcycle and rode off.
Worse still there has been no sign of either men or their families since the abduction of Sania infact both of their homes nearby have been locked up and secured, which has provided a major cause for concern over the safety of Sania.
In the meanwhile Pakistani police, Muhammad Naveed Habib’s brother in law Mohammad Nasir was brought in for questioning on the same day, but was released 9 days later after a rigorous interrogation. A First Investigation Report (FIR) has been registered against the two men Mohammed Naveed Habib and Pervaiz, under charges for abduction to compel to marriage under Pakistan Penal Code 365B:
