PESHAWAR: A senior army officer, who had gone missing near Peshawar on Monday, was recovered on Tuesday, official sources told Daily Times.
The serving brigadier was recovered today, said the source who would not disclose whether his safe release was made possible through a military operation or payment of ransom to the kidnappers. Rumour about the missing of the senior army officer spread in the city late Monday night.
However, police and intelligence officials did not confirm the reports that day. The exact location of the ‘kidnapping’ was also not clear as some officials said the officer had gone missing in Nowshera instead of Peshawar.
