NOWSHERA: In a police operation conducted to recover former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s son, security personnel recovered a captive and arrested four abductors in Nowshera, Express News reported on Thursday.

According to initial details, security forces raided multiple places on a tip-off late last night in Nowshera.

Ali Haider is still missing, however, police search to recover him is underway.

Ali Haider was contesting on the PP-200 seat against Shaukat Bosan of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N).

Two wrongs do not make a right. You are right though about hundreds of ordinary people missing and no urgency by authorities about them.

Shahbaz Taseer was released on Feb 16 and sent to Dubai quietly according to agreement with the captives. His family and media is tight lipped about it. But you can find some information on the net.

Well done by law enforcing agencies. Hope Gillani's son and rest will also be recovered soon, Insha Allah.
