According to his son, Sufi mannered G M Bhagat was taken in to custody on 9th September 2006 by Pakistanís secret service agents from Krishan Barbar's Shop in the city.

Thursday evening from Omerkotís police station G M Bhagat told BBC that, time in disappearance was spent in trial and he has come back due to love of survival. He also recited a couplet of Punjabi poet Baba Bhullay Shah :

"Imman Salamat har koi mangay assan ishq salamat mangay
Ashaiq dosakh kadon na wesan bolhya, bhalay howon sharbay bhangay"

G M Bhagat told that secret service agents put him in a bus from Mir Pur Khas to Omerkot and as he reached close to Omerkot, police arrested him again.

Along with G M Bhagat, Omerkotís former nationalist leader Chaitin Bajerís arrest was also announced.

Chaitin Bajerís brother Khem Chand told BBC that they got the news of both G M and Chaitinís release on Thursday evening and upon meeting them both seemed very weak.

Khem Chand said that in Pakistan it is better to get arrested then go missing, in custody at least you have the satisfaction that the person is alive, you have no idea whether the missing people are alive or dead.
