Same jihadi group holding Taseer, Warren, Malik


The Punjab inspector general of police on Wednesday revealed that three key personalities abducted from Lahore were in the custody of one jihadi group, a private TV channel reported. The abductions of Shahbaz Taseer, son of former Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer from Gulberg, US contractor Warren Weinstein from Model Town and ex-CJCSC Gen Tariq Majeed’s son-in-law Amir Malik from Garden Town are all being attributed to a single group. Punjab IGP Javed Iqbal said limited resources were a key hurdle in the recovery of abducted people. He said besides heavy ransom, there were certain demands by kidnappers that were difficult to accept.
