QUETTA: Missing leader of the Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Abdul Wadood Raisani reportedly surfaced on Tuesday in the Nushki area, about 145 kilometres from Quetta. Raisani’s sister confirmed that he has been recovered. “I talked to my brother and he appears to be very weak,” she said, adding that he would be shifted to Quetta soon. Raisani was kidnapped from the Mastung district in 2010, following which her sister registered a case against the intelligence agencies. She thanked the Chief Justice of Pakistan, saying that her brother was released because of the pressure exerted on the abductors by the Supreme Court.
