Seven people, including two women and four children, were rescued during a raid on one of Pakistani provincial lawmaker’s dungeon.

The raid was conducted by police and Anti-Terrorist Force (ATF) on the private jail of former provincial education minister and member of Baluchistan assembly Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran on Sunday, according to the Dawn newspaper.

Six other people were also picked up by the authorities and arms and ammunition were recovered from their possession, said the police.

The victims were discovered in the raid following an attack on police by Khetran’s private guards on Sunday, reported The Daily Mail. The captives had reportedly been chained and mistreated.

Khetran surrendered to the police on Sunday after a case was registered against him in Barkhan district for kidnapping three policemen and snatching their weapons.

Khetran is a member of the Baluchistan assembly and belongs to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Party. “I am in the opposition therefore I am being targeted,” he said told media persons.
