QUETTA: A senior cleric in Balochistan has returned home on Friday – nine months after he, along with a son and driver, was kidnapped from the provincial capital.

Maulana Abu Turab, the provincial ameer of Jamat Ahle Hadees, was kidnapped by gunmen from Airport Road on September 8, 2017 while he was travelling to his seminary.

Later, the kidnappers had released his son and driver but took away Maulana Abu Turab.

The Jamat Ahle Hadees had staged countrywide protests against the kidnapping while the law-enforcement agencies followed different clues but could not trace him.

On Friday, the kidnappers released Maulana Abu Turab but his family refused to share any details with the media.

It was not immediately known if the family has paid any ransom for his release.
