QUETTA: A neurosurgeon, who was abducted from Quetta in December last year, safely returned home on Wednesday after 48 days.

Civil Hospital neurosurgeon Dr Sheikh Ibrahim Khalil was kidnapped from Shahbaz Town while he was on his way home from work on December 13.

Geo News quoted the doctor’s nephew Mohammad Umar as saying that the abductors had left Dr Khalil in Karachi from where he took a flight to Quetta.

According to media reports, armed men dropped the doctor near Mall Road from where he hailed a taxi and reached home.

The taxi driver, who dropped the doctor home, said the doctor’s clothes were blood-soaked.

It is not yet clear whether or not he was released after paying ransom.
