Pak police arrest 2 abductors of Brit toddler
Islamabad: Pakistan police on Thursday arrested two key accused involved in kidnapping of Sahil Saeed, the five-year-old boy who was later released on payment of ransom.
The two accused, who were nabbed from Jhelum, have been identified as Imran and Safeer.
More information will be given by police officials later today.
Sahil was snatched at gunpoint from his grandmother`s house in the town of Jhelum, about 100 kilometres (65 miles) south of Islamabad, in the early hours of March 04 at the end of a family holiday.
Pakistani and British officials launched a hunt for the boy and 12 days later Sahil was recovered safe and well in a field not far from Jhelum -- but only after the boy`s uncle had paid a GBP 110,000 (USD 168,000) ransom.
