One of the seven Indian nationals, who was kidnapped in Baghlan province of Afghanistan in May 2018, has safely returned to India. The information was provided by the Ministry of External Affairs late on February 18, 2019.
India also thanked Afghanistan for help in securing the release of the Indian national. In a press note MEA said:
“We are grateful to the Government of Afghanistan for their support in securing the release and repatriation of the Indian national. We continue to work closely with the Government of Afghanistan for safe and early return of the remaining six Indian nationals.”
