Islamabad, Mar.16 (ANI): Pakistani police officials have claimed that the five-year old British child, Sahil Saeed, who was kidnapped from his grandmother's house in Punjab's Jhelum district two weeks ago, has been safely recovered.

Meanwhile, the British High Commission has also confirmed Sahil's recovery, who was abandoned by his kidnappers near a school in Danga village.
