Shahbaz was kidnapped from his office on August 23, 2011 by militants who demanded ransom for his release. He was recovered reportedly after an operation led by Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) together with intelligence personnel in Kuchlak, Balochistan.
His hair and beard were both overgrown, in the recent pictures that were circulated among media.
Shahbaz had been brought to Lahore from Quetta on Monday morning via a special aircraft.
