Four Iranian border guards who were abducted by Takfiri militant groups near Iran-Pakistan border have reportedly been freed and handed over to Iranian authorities.

The Jaish-ul-Adl terrorist group claimed responsibility for the February 6 abduction of the five Iranian border guards in the Jakigour region in Iran’s Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province and their transfer to Pakistani territory.

Ramin Hazrati, Sajjad Zahani, Jamshid Danaei far, Mohammad Nezami and Jamshid Teymouri were the five guards who were abducted.

On March 23, the terror group said that it had 'executed' Jamshid Danaei far to put Iranian government under more pressure.

Iranian MP, Ismaeil Kowsari, told Tasnim news agency on Friday that the group has released four guards while the body of Danaei far has also been handed over to Iranian authorities in Pakistan.

Jaish-ul Adl has claimed many attacks against Iranians in the Sistan region.

On October 25, 2013, the terrorist group killed 14 Iranian border guards and wounded six others in the border region near the city of Saravan in Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province.
