Pak Army Rescues Two Kidnapped Sikhs: Reports
Authorities in Pakistan on Monday are reported to have recovered two Sikhs, who were being held in captivity since their abduction by ‘terrorists’ in Khyber. The two are now under protection of Pakistani soldiers.
Reports citing a statement issued by the Pak military said that security forces had recovered the two between the Orakzai and Khyber districts in the country’s semi-autonomous tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.
The two Sikhs were part of a trio kidnapped by gunmen in hopes of a ransom in late January, said reports citing officials.
The third Sikh, Jaspal Singh, was beheaded after relatives failed to pay a ransom. His body was found dumped in Orakzai last month.
Jaspal’s savage killing triggered protests in several parts of India.
