Efforts underway to return home body of martyred border guard

Tehran, April 6, IRNA – Deputy Interior Minister for Security Affairs Ali Abdollahi said Sunday that efforts are underway to return home body of the Iranian border guard who was martyred by Jaish-ul-Adl terrorists.

Five Iranian border guards (Sajjad Zahani, Mohammad Nezami, Ramin Hazrati, Jamshid Teimouri and Jamshid Danaeefar) were abducted by members of the Jeish-ul-Adl terrorist group in Jakigour region of Iran’s Sistan and Balouchestan province on February 8 and then taken to Pakistan.

Jamshid Danayeefar, 27, was killed by terrorists in late March.

Abdollahi said that the body of martyr Danaeefar was not yet been handed over to the Iranian authorities.

Other four abducted border guards were back home earlier on Sunday, Abdollahi said adding that their return was resulted from "coordinated operations" made by Iran’s security, police and border forces as well as efforts made by the ministries of Foreign Affairs and Information and Sistan and Balouchestan Governor's Office.
