Maulana Abu Turab released nine months after being kidnapped


QUETTA: The leader of Jamat Ahle Hadees in Balochistan, Maulana Abu Turab returned home on Friday, nine months after he was kidnapped from Quetta with his son and driver.

Following the release of Maulana Abu Turab, his family refused to share any details with the media. Thus, it was not confirmed whether the family paid any ransom for his release or not.

It was reported that gunmen kidnapped the three people from Airport Road on September 8, 2017, while they were on their way to Maulana Abu Turab’s seminary.

Later, the kidnappers had released his son and driver but took away Maulana Abu Turab.

The Jamat Ahle Hadees had staged countrywide protests against the kidnapping while the law-enforcement agencies followed different clues but could not trace him.
