JAMRUD: Four people abducted from various areas of Khyber Agency have recently returned home, claimed the political administration on Saturday. Political tehsildar Irshad Khan Safi told the media that the administration has formed several teams of the levies force to conduct raids across the agency and checkpoints have also been set up to curb kidnapping for ransom cases. According to Safi, out of fear of being caught in a raid, kidnappers set free two brothers identified as Ahsanullah and Arifullah as well as two others. Safi said the political administration has handed over the four people to their families.
