QUETTA, March 17: Wasey Tareen, the prosecutor general of Balochistan who was kidnapped last month, returned home on Sunday, his brother said.

Mr Tareen and his driver were going to Islamabad by car on Feb 27 when they went missing.

Mr Sajid Tareen said his brother and the driver were found in Daranbad area between Zhob and Dera Ismail Khan on Sunday morning. He said armed men had kidnapped them near Mughal Kot area and kept them blindfolded.

Mr Sajid said tribal elders had played an important role in the release of the prosecutor general, adding they were under pressure because of demonstrations staged by lawyers for several days in protest against the kidnapping.
