LAHORE: Unidentified men have abducted the brother-in-law of former Pakistani cricketer Saeed Anwar from the Punjab capital city, family said on Monday.

Saeed Munir – who lives in a private housing colony on Bedian Road – was present in his house when the unknown persons forcibly made entry into the premises and took him away some 10 days ago, the Geo News quoted a family member as saying.

His wife, Shakila, in an application to the police, stated that over 30 kidnappers arrived at her house in cars that had government number plates and took her husband away.

“My husband’s kidnappers were wearing masks on their faces and four to five of them were dressed in civil attire,” Shakila said.

The kidnappers also took away a computer, laptop, and many documents, she added.

Police say an investigation into the matter is underway.
