A Sikh man in Pakistan, who was missing since February after being abducted from his home, has been found by the police in a village in the country’s northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Avinash Singh, in his 20s, went missing from the Gulberg area of Peshawar Cantonment on February 28. According to police, Singh was found from a village near Laachi Tehsil of district Kohat. He has been admitted to a hospital in Peshawar as he was severely tortured by the abductors, they said. Four accused, including a woman, who were named in the case filed by Singh’s father have been arrested. The family members of Singh said he was tortured by the abductors during his captivity. The Sikh community earlier protested against missing youth and asked the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial government to find him.
