The Star newspaper reports that a ransom of R2, 4million was paid after Maha Qassim (11), was kidnapped from EP Bauman Primary school in Mayfair, Johannesburg.
The newspaper reports that there was a ransom demand and the R2, 4 Million was paid two weeks before Maha was rescued.
However, the kidnappers did not release her after the first ranson payment. Instead, the kidnappers demanded more money, which the family did not pay.
The newspaper said Maha is heavily traumatized although she was not physically harmed.
