CM orders lie-detector tests of recovered children

Staff Reporter
Lahore—Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Tuesday ordered polygraph tests, also known as a lie-detector test, of children recovered in kidnapping cases to verify the veracity of claims that they had in fact been kidnapped.
The decision came after police briefed Shahbaz on a report about child abduction in Punjab, where residents are campaigning against the recent surge in child disappearances in the province.
According to the report presented to the chief minister, 94 per cent of the 767 missing children have been recovered this year, most of whom, police claim, left their homes over domestic disputes and were not abducted.
However, residents of the Lahore say the city has recently witnessed a surge in incidents of disappearance and kidnapping of children.
