Levies Force personnel recovered the body on a tip-off and shifted it to Quetta for an autopsy.
“The victim was shot in the head and his body was kept in the morgue,” hospital sources said.
Local tribal elder Takri Raheem Dad, son of Haq Dad, was identified by his relatives. He had gone missing along with his nephew, Zinuddin, on December 19, 2011. Zinuddin had been released after 19 days.
According to the relatives, the two had been travelling from Bolan to Quetta when they were intercepted by a group of armed men and taken away.

VFBM said they wanted the misisng persons produced before the judiciary and tried in court if they were involved in any crimes.
