A YOUNG man was kidnapped at gun-point two weeks ago and has not been heard of since.

The Pakistan-born Shoib ­Aktar (23) was driving around Rutland Farm in Dannhauser when he and his friend were confronted by four men.

Aktar’s friend Mujahib Masood, who was with him when he was kidnapped, said he had no idea where his friend was taken.

Police said two men had been arrested in connection with the kidnapping but had been granted bail yesterday afternoon.

Police spokesperson Thulani Zwane appealed to the public for assistance in finding Aktar. Should anyone have information on Aktar’s whereabouts, contact investigating officer Warrant Officer Thamsanqa Thwala of Dannhauser SAPS at 034 621 6500.
