Ejaz Baig, Mohammad Naseem and Waseem were kidnapped on November 12 last year from the New Karachi area of Karachi.

KARACHI: The Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) recovered three kidnapped government employees from the Hub area of Balochistan on Saturday, reported Express News.

The police, along with the Citizens Police Liaison Committee (CPLC), carried out a joint raid in the area and safely recovered Ejaz Baig, Mohammad Naseem and Waseem who were kidnapped on November 12 last year from the New Karachi area of Karachi, said SP Ghulam Subhani.

The kidnappers had initially demanded a ransom of Rs150 million but had cut it down to Rs50 million after negotiations.

The kidnappers, around 5-6 in number, fled from the scene after firing at the police; however, the police says that the suspects have been identified and will be arrested soon.

Last month, the AVCC and CPLC managed to rescue a baby boy and a young man from separate kidnappers near Singer Chowrangi, Korangi.
