Seven kidnapped policemen recovered in Rajanpur search operation

DERA GHAZI KHAN: Seven policemen who had been kidnapped from Rajanpur district on Sunday were recovered in a search operation earlier today, Punjab police said.

The policemen were rescued after the Punjab police launched an operation for their safe recovery. All the seven cops were recovered after a heavy exchange of fire between the kidnappers and the police.

The kidnappers, however, managed to flee taking advantage of the darkness of the night. A search operation is under way to track them down, police officials said.

The seven policemen, Luqman, Zeeshan, Sabir, Shakir, Jamshed, Safdar and Muzammil, were on their way to a picket of Nabi Shah on a boat when they were abducted by 15 dacoits from the riverine area of River Indus in the limits of Bangla Ichha police, Rajanpur, on Sunday.
