The family of the young man named Mohamed Gamal al-Bakry, 30, filed a claim with Belqas Police Station accusing a currency trader and others of abducting the victim and torturing him. The victim was transferred to Belqas General Hospital to receive medical treatment for his injuries.
"I received a call from someone I know from the city of Gamasa who asked me to pick him up from the international road. I went with a tuk-tuk to pick him up, and found two cars waiting for me," said the victim during interrogations.
They then released him after they had discovered who the real thieves were, according to the statements made by the victim.
