M.M.ALAM QUETTA: Shahbaz Taseer, son of slain Governor of Punjab, who was recovered yesterday from a hotel in Kuchlak, left for Lahore in a special plane escorted by ISPR officials. Shahbaz Taseer was recovered from a hotel on Tuesday. Initially it was reported that the recovery was a result of an operation conducted jointly by the sensitive agencies and CTD. However, it transpired eventually that security personnel found him at the hotel. He was kidnapped on August 26, 2011 from near his office situated in Gulburg, Lahore. Since his Blackberry remained in his car the agencies managed to trace his movement to a certain extent. It was believed that Taseer jr. was initially kidnapped by Lashkar-e-Jhanghvi who handed him over to Taliban. Reportedly Rs. 40 crore was demanded as ransom and probably money did change hands.
