QUETTA, Feb 3: Police were questioning more than a dozen suspects on Tuesday over the kidnapping of a top UN official in Balochistan.
Officials admitted on Tuesday they had no idea who had snatched John Solecki and where he had been taken, given the myriad criminal gangs, insurgent rebels and militants known to operate in Balochistan, which borders Afghanistan.
“We are interrogating 15 to 16 suspects to track down the kidnappers,” said senior police officer Wazir Khan Nasir.
Police and paramilitary soldiers set up checkpoints and blocked exits from Quetta in an effort to look for leads about Solecki’s whereabouts, according to police and witnesses. —AFP
