GHOTKI - Additional Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KP) Muhammad Ramzan was recovered after payment of ransom here on Sunday.

It should be mentioned that unidentified miscreants had abducted Additional Secretary KP Muhammad Ramzan from Gulshan-e-Iqbal area of Karachi some two months ago.

The kidnappers had demanded Rs20 million for the release of the official, but his brother after negotiation with the abductors paid Rs7.5 million.

The police high ups and provincial authorities had made tall claims to recover the additional secretary, but as usual failed even to trace out the kidnappers.
