Pakistan reopens key trade route with Afghanistan

In another case of abduction of Indian nationals in foreign countries, six engineers working in Afghanistan have been kidnapped in Baghlan province, allegedly by Taliban militants.

The incident happened in Bagh-e-Shamal village in Baghla province.

Provincial police spokesman Zabiullah Shuja said the Indian engineers of KEC International, an RPG group company, were working on a project for the construction of a power sub-station.

Although the Taliban spokesperson told the Times of India that they have no update about the abduction, the police officials claimed that they have been told by the group that the Indians are being held by them.

The External Affairs Ministry said in New Delhi it is in touch with authorities in Afghanistan and is ascertaining the details of the incident.

Meanwhile, media reports on Monday, said that Intelligence officials of Afghanistan have detained a three-member kidnap gang from capital Kabul city.

The gunmen reportedly mistook them for government employees.

An Afghan official says a bombing at a mosque in the eastern Khost province that was being used as a voter registration center killed 12 people and wounded another 33.

Nemati said that they are attempting to get the engineers freed through mediation as well as through tribe elders, PTI reported.

No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction so far.

Harsh Goenka, the chairman of RPG Enterprises, the parent company of KEC, said he has requested External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to help rescue its employees. In 2016, an Indian aid worker, Judith D'Souza, was abducted in Kabul and was released 40 days later.
