Police at Kira Division are investigating an incident of kidnap and aggravated robbery that took place on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at about 5pm in Kireka Zone, Namugongo Parish, Kira municipality, Wakiso district.
It is alleged that Rafik Khan, 36, a Pakistani National and resident of Kiwatule-Nakawa, was stopped by a group of people among whom two were wielding SMGs and donning military fatigue while others were casually dressed.
He was pulled from the driver’s seat and bundled into the boot of his motor vehicle Reg No UBM877B Probox which the assailants later drove off via the northern by-pass.
The unidentified assailants later abandoned the victim at Kasangalabi along Kayunga – Mukono Road.
“We have recorded Mr Khan’s statement and established that he was robbed of 300 USD, UGX 700,000 and his two Samsung Smart Phones,” said ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson.
He said the Police have Friday morning revisited the crime scene and established that the assailants were allegedly dropped off by a Toyota fielder and stood in wait for their target to pass by.
“We are following up with our CCTV cameras to establish the car’s movement and to whom it belongs,” noted Owoyesigyire.
He said the victim is currently receiving treatment for the minor injuries he sustained during the incident.
