Shahbaz Taseer to Reunite with his Family after 4 Years | Leaves for Lahore
QUETTA: Shahbaz Taseer, son of slain Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer, recovered after being held by kidnappers for over four years, departed for Lahore on Wednesday to unite with his family.
Taseer is being flown to Lahore in a special aircraft by intelligence officials, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
In the photographs shared by DG ISPR Asim Bajwa Wednesday morning, Shahbaz has changed from the previous night’s shalwar kameez into jeans and a polo shirt. In the second photo, Shahbaz smiles as he points towards the camera and his beard appears to have been trimmed.
Balochistan Inspector General Ahsan Mehboob said Tuesday that Shahbaz was recovered from a hotel on the outskirts of Kuchlak town.
“Security personnel found a man with overgrown beard and long hair, who identified himself as Shahbaz, son of Salmaan Taseer,” a senior security official, who was part of the team that recovered the missing Taseer, told media.
After his recovery, Shahbaz was shifted to Quetta.
Anwar Kakar, a spokesperson for the Balochistan government, told media that Shahbaz was found to be in good health, physically and mentally.
He was then shifted to the Combined Military Hospital in Quetta for a complete medical check-up.
Shahbaz was kidnapped from Lahore on Aug 26, 2011, near his company’s head office in Gulberg area. He was driving towards the offices of the First Capital Group off M.M. Alam Road in Gulberg when he was intercepted by the kidnappers.
His was recovered just a week after Salman Taseer’s assassin Mumtaz Qadri was executed at Rawalpindi's Adiala Jail.
