Taseer's son , American abducted by gangs: Report

The agencies say that the abductors have sold their “prized-catches” to bigger extortion gangs for higher ransom and this has brought investigations to an almost dead end, the Express Tribune reported. Investigators now say the two cases are not linked and two separate gangs are involved in the abductions.

However, no link has been established with banned militant groups in either case, the paper said quoting sources.

They said they had informed the families that going after the abductors could endanger the victims and the only option possibly left is to negotiate a ransom, which is yet to be communicated by the abductors. The paper said the agencies had managed to trace Shahbaz Taseer as well as the American only to discover that the original abductors had "sold" their victims to another set of persons.
