ISPR releases pictures of Shahbaz Taseer


RAWALPINDI: Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Tuesday night released pictures of Shahbaz Taseer, son of slain Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer who was recovered earlier today.

“Latest pics (pictures) of Mr Shahbaz Taseer taken at Quetta, 9:30 PM today. In full protection, he is hale and hearty,” DG ISPR Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa wrote on Twitter while releasing the pictures.

Earlier, Shahbaz was recovered from a hotel located in Kuchlak, on outskirts of Quetta.


Shahbaz was kidnapped from Gulberg area of Lahore in August 26, 2011, months after assassination of his father. He is said to be taken to Pak-Afghan tribal region , where he was handed over to Taliban groups.

His recovery comes a week after Mumtaz Qadri, the convicted assassin of Salmaan Taseer, was hanged on murder charges.
