Levies recover 9 abducted foreigners near Pak-Iran border


Nine foreign abductees were recovered by Levies forces on Friday following a heavy exchange of fire near the Pak-Iran border in Balochistan.

Reportedly, on a tip-off, a raid was conducted in the Taftan neighbourhood in Chagai district. The kidnappers left behind the Afghan abductees and fled the scene.

Chagai Deputy Commissioner Fateh Khan Khajjak confirmed the development, saying nine Afghan illegal immigrants had been abducted from Afghan border town Rabaat 20 days ago.

He said that a crackdown has been launched against criminals and five abductors had been arrested in separate raids.
