Afghan ex-governor kidnapped in Pakistan recovered

152 Days ago

Islamabad: A former Afghan governor who was kidnapped in Islamabad earlier this month was recovered from Mardan on Friday, Afghan Consul General Abdullah Waheed Pohan said.

Wahidi, who served as governor of Afghanistan's Kunar and Herat provinces, was taken to various places after abduction, Dawn online quoted Pohan as saying.

The consul general received a call from Mardan police early on Friday and was informed that Wahidi has been recovered in the area after an encounter.

The abductors were trying to take Wahidi to another place from Mardan when they were intercepted at a checkpost by police, he said.

The police were able to recover the Afghan politician after an exchange of fire with the kidnappers.

"He is fine physically but has been mentally disturbed," Pohan said of the ex-governor.

Afghanistan's foreign ministry had earlier summoned Pakistan's ambassador to express "serious concerns" over Wahidi's abduction and urged Islamabad to throw all its resources into finding him. (IANS)
