Police widen investigation scope to recover Shahbaz Taseer

Having failed to trace out the abducted Shahbaz Taseer, son of slain former Governor Punjab Salman Taseer, police have broadened the investigation scope to recover the abductee.
In this regard the police have included Taseer Company’s shareholders in investigation to find out possibility of any link of kidnapping of Shahbaz Taseer with business deal if there was any.
In the backdrop of the circumstances Shahbaz Taseer’s abduction has gained more importance as some months earlier his father late Salman Taseer was gunned down by one of his security guard for his controversial statement regarding blasphemy law. Most people still believe that the kidnapping of Shahbaz Taseer was in continuation of same issue and the kidnappers can bargain to get release ofMumtaz Qadiri but no group has yet claimed that responsibility neither contacted the family or authorities for their demands.
The police was investigating the case from various angles to track down the abductors.
In this connection, investigators are trying to figure out the nature of Taseer’s relations with his relatives, business partners and rivals.
Sources said that Inspector General Punjab Police (IGP), Capital City Police officer (CCPO) along with other officers personally visited various areas of Lahore and met people to get any clue behind the abduction.
It should be mentioned that Shahbaz Taseer was abducted from Gulberg area of the capital city Friday, Aug 26, by four unidentified gunmen.
The police soon after the kidnapping incident placed strict cordoned off in the area and raided various areas of the city for the recovery of Shahabz Taseer but could not succeed.
On the other hand abduction of Shahbaz Taseer has resulted in rifts between political parties and gave rise to new blame game.

    Rana Sanaullah says Shahbaz Taseer has been abducted by militant groups. We all know Sanaullah and his leaders have close links with those groups. So, it is quite clear who did it. Sharifs have still not overcome their animosity with Salman Taseer.

    Shahid Malik ko Rana Sanaullah fobia ho gia ha….hahahahahahahahahahaha
    I dont know why people like him do not understand that PPP is involved in this abduction, just to change the focus from karachi. This is a dirty politics from PPP. Every day people are abducted in NWFP, Sindh and Balochistan. If one person is abducted from Punjab, i think this is not a big issue. Why he has not taken his security along?????
    Mr. Shahid Malik plz answer this question???

      Mr. Shakeel You too seem to be suffering from PPP phobia. This is not the case of one person only. Several months ago, son-in-law of General(R) Tariq Majid was also abducted in Lahore and still not recovered. This is total admin istrative failure of Shahbaz govt in Punjab. Look at the alarming rate of crimes in Punjab. You cannot compare it with Karachi situation which is rooted in history of ethnic and political conflicts with various ethnic groups struggling for political power. Punjab situation is administrative failure.Crimes are have risen sharply in Punjab. If it really is a PPP job, then still it is failure of Punjab govt that cud not recover it and wud you tell me what about son-in-law of Gen. Tarique Majid.

    Crime in Karachi, NWFP and Balochistan is 1000% higher than Punjab. In Punjab Shahbaz Sharif is delievering results. He is doing every thing alone. I think the only government which is working and active is in Punjab. for one two incidents you can not blame the best government. Punjab is doing much better than others….you people are targeting it because you all are against PMLN and jealous with their great projects in Punjab. Do what ever you want, without PMLN Pakistan can not move forward and we will stand like a wall if someone will target the best Government in Punjab. Shahbaz Sharif is the best person: Geo Shahbaz Sharif, Geo Punjab Government Geo PMLN:

    Pakistan is a doomed place, every evil is in action in that country I am so thankful to
    Allah that my parents who were so close to move to Pakistan in 1947 decided not to
    It is joke that Pakistan is a Muslim country everything in Pakistan is un-Islamic. This
    Taseer kidnapping is a part of normal Pakistani life. Pakistan need a revolution which has to be the mother of all revolutions to get rid of all its corrupt, Hippocrates politicians otherwise it will go down to its distinction very soon. I am proud of my country India where we have more security and freedom then so called Muslim Pakistan.
