LONDON (AFP) - The father of a five-year-old British boy held hostage for 12 days in Pakistan said Sunday the kidnappers had threatened to chop off parts of the boys body if he did not pay a ransom. Raja Naqqash Saeed told the Mail on Sunday newspaper how the gang holding his son Sahil had warned: Do exactly as we say, or you will be receiving a little gift - any part of his body. When he tried to explain that he could not afford the amount they wanted, the gang said: Look, you know how we came to your house in jackets packed with bullets and grenades? You know what we can do to him - we can put a jacket around him with grenades and explosives and blow him to pieces. And we will deliver whats left of him to you in a bin bag on a roundabout. Sahil was snatched at gunpoint from his grandmothers house in Jhelum in the early hours of March 4 at the end of a family holiday. Pakistani and British officials launched a hunt for the boy and 12 days later Sahil was recovered safe and well in a field not far from Jhelum - but only after the boys uncle had paid a 110,000-pound ransom. That was largely recovered, however, in an international operation that resulted in five arrests in France and Spain.
