Indian Woman Judith D’Souza kidnapped In Kabul | Latest Political News
An Indian woman working for an international NGO has been kidnapped by suspected militants right outside her office in the heart of Kabul and efforts were being made to secure her release. The woman, identified as Judith D’Souza, a resident of Kolkata, was abducted from Taimani area along with two other persons on Thursday evening. “She was abducted around 10:40 pm on Thursday from the Taimani area of Kabul,” CNN-News18 reported.
However, NewsX report said that the abduction took place close to Qala-e-Fatullah, an area of Kabul where many such incidents have taken place in the past. No group has come forward to claim responsibility for the abduction yet. The Indian authorities are in touch with the Afghan government and are trying to secure an early release of the woman. The authorities also got in touch with the Judith’s family. Government sources claimed that all efforts are being made to ensure safe and early release of the woman.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said the government was doing everything to rescue her. The woman’s father D D’Souza said in Kolkata that the family received information that three persons — Judith, a security guard and the driver of the vehicle, were abducted. The kidnappers, the sources said, spoke Pashto with an accent that suggested they were from the Shomali Plains, a plateau that was once among the country’s most fertile areas, but was reduced to a desert in the course of decades of war.
Two men have been detained for questioning.D’Souza, a Kolkata resident, is a gender specialist with the Aga Khan Foundation — part of the Aga Khan Development Network, which has funneled almost $750 million into the war-torn country’s reconstruction. The Aga Khan Foundation is an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network and has been working on restoration projects in the war-ravaged country. “Our Embassy is in touch with senior Afghan authorities and the government is in touch with her family in Kolkata too. All efforts are being made by Afghan authorities to secure her early release”, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) officials were reported saying.
