Official sources said an FC team raided CID police office in Quetta and arrested SP Tariq Manzoor, DSPs Qutab and Bilal and five other personnel.

The senior police officers were alleged to have kidnapped Abdul Qudoos from Dalbandin, the district headquarters of Chagai, on Jan 16. They then contacted the family of the abducted man and demanded Rs5 million for his release. Later, they agreed to release the man on payment of Rs2.5 million.

The family contacted FC officials and informed them about the incident.

On the advice of FC officials, the family put special marks on the currency notes for identification and later paid the same to the kidnappers in Sariab area of the city.
