However, the details of the incident still remain unclear as the student who was shot, Haris Fateh, is still unable to speak to the police. It is being reported that Haris was shot while he was trying to save Mangi.
Her friend Haris got shot trying to protect his friend Dua from getting abducted. Please pray for him. Happened in the vicinity of THQ, Bara Bukhari, Defence, Karachi today around 9pm.

People also started posting and sharing their thoughts about the incident on social media.
Just hear about Dua and I'm shocked after viewing the disgusting comments of some assholes calling her kidnap halal over her outfit and appearance. So, why the 4 y/o jannat and 6 y/o zainab was raped and murdered brutally? Did they seduce the animal? I'm freaking out.#DuaMangi

I am so sorry #DuaMangi, your only crime was existing in this horrible country, which will do whatever it takes to shift the blame on a young woman who deserved better. I really hope you're okay.

She was kidnapped from #Karachi's Ketty Defence with no clue yet, to the Police. Her accompanied friend was also injured and is in the critical condition. Why #SindhPolice is less interested to trace and fix her attackers and kidnappers? @MuradAliShahPPP @murtazawahab1 #DuaMangi

Some people criticized other people who are victim-blaming Dua and considering it her fault because of the way she dressed.
Not shocked but again disappointed. To see the comments and debates that how she is responsible for her own kidnap
The women raped in graveyards, the children the new borns. You will justify that by saying why they came into this world? I'll rip your tongue out. #DuaMangi

This is the most shittiest society to live in where people start judging you by your dress instead praying for her life and the boy who got shot
Retards started taking about how she was dressed this will happen because of her dressing !!!! MF #DuaMangi

This society has become so misogynist that they approve of kidnapping of a girl just because she wears sleeveless dress. When it comes to women we as men never accept that the fault lies within not with women or their dress. #DuaMangi

To People blaming her off shoulder dress.
Do you guys think men rape hens ducks and even Dogs just because they don't wear clothes ?
We live in a society where two 3 years old children and a burka clad women gets raped in one week #DuaMangi
— Khizar Zaidi (@itskhizarzaidi) December 2, 2019
Even after the rape of hens, toddlers and even dead. And what not, you name it and it has been raped.
But there’s still a debate going on how she was dressed and how she appealed the kidnappers. How fucked up people are.#DuaMangi

Responses to Dua Mangi’s abduction are a proof that our society loves to Victim blame and insert religious comments in such cases#DuaMangi
