Kabul: Afghanistan on Sunday expressed grave concerns over abduction of former Afghan governor from Islamabad Afghan Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Afghan Foreign Ministry summoned Pakistan’s ambassador in Kabul to protest over the kidnapping of former governor of Herat province in Pakistan capital.

“Afghanistan Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil Karzai called Pakistan ambassador Syed Abrar Hussain to the Foreign Ministry and shared his deep concerns at the kidnapping of Sayed Fazalullah Wahidi, former governor of Heart in Islamabad,” an Afghan Foreign Ministry statement read.

According to the statement, the Afghan deputy foreign minister strongly condemned the incident and said Wahidi is an important Afghan national. “The government of Afghanistan expects Pakistan to fulfil its responsibility and use all resources to take immediate steps for the recovery of Wahidi and investigate as to which group was involved in his abduction,” the statement quoted Hekmat Karzai as saying.

Unidentified men on Friday “kidnapped” Sayed Fazlullah Wahidi, who was out shopping with his 12-year-old grandson at the Rana market, Afghan embassy in the federal capital said in a police report.
