QUETTA: Followed by more than a week of protests, two judges kidnapped in Balochistan were released by their captors on Tuesday.
Sessions Judge Jan Mohammad Gohar Yasinzai and Civil Judge Mohammad Ali Kakar were going to Usta Mohammad to attend a wedding, when a group of armed men intercepted them and whisked them away near Jaffarabad District. The men were found in the Jhal Magsi area of Nasirabad Division.
Addressing a news conference, Commissioner Nasirabad division Hyder Ali Sheku said the police, levies and other law enforcement agencies have launched a massive crackdown against groups responsible for kidnapping for ransom. Fifty-one suspects have been rounded up, he said.
