THE police have filed criminal case against the suspects behind botched abduction of a physician in an east coast village of Zamboanga, an official announced Sunday.
Superintendent Nonito Asdai, Police Station 6 chief, said an inquest case for attempted abduction was filed on Saturday before the City Prosecutor’s Office against the suspects.
Asdai said one of the suspects was identified a Kusar Atari, who was arrested just after the botched abduction of Dr. Armando Iturralde last Thursday night in the village of Talon-Talon, east of this city.
Iturralde was busy attending his patients when Atari and his companions arrived and forcibly dragged the physician outside the clinic.
Police Station 6 personnel arrested Atari while his companions sped towards the mangrove area aboard a white multicab vehicle.
Asdai said Atari has availed his right to preliminary investigation by signing 15 days waiver. The latter is presently detained at the Police Station 6 headquarters.
