They were still looking for Pinki three days later, when Jamila went missing. They were looking for Jamila two days later, when Pinki's parents found a parcel on their threshold. It was a parcel, done in newspaper, trussed with string. A parcel, as big as a large pillow. Or, a small child. By that time, Mary was missing.
