Kunar’s deputy governor ‘kidnapped’ in Peshawar

Oct 28, 2017 - 19:51

KABUL (Pajhwok): The deputy governor for eastern Kunar province, Qazi Mohammad Nabi Ahmadi, has been abducted in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, an official said on Saturday.

Kunar governor’s spokesman, Abdul Ghani Mosmim, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the deputy governor had been introduced to Kabul authorities for health treatment through an official letter.

However, he didn’t know to which country the deputy governor had gone for treatment.

But a source told Pajhwok that Qazi Ahmadi had gone to Pakistan for treatment along with his brother, but his mobile phone couldn’t be reached.

Afghan Consul General in Peshawar, Moin Maristial, admitted to the Pakistani media outlets that the Kunar’s deputy governor had been kidnapped.

A member of the Hezb-i-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) media office, Fazal Ghani, said Qazi Ahmadi was an active member of the HIA. He said Ahmadi traveled to Peshawar for treatment where was abducted by unknown men in Dabgari area.

It’s pertinent to mention here that after the HIA’s joining of the peace process, many of the group’s members have been killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The slain HIA members included Gulbadin Hekmatyar’s secretary who was also Hekmatyar son’s father-in-law. He was killed by unknown men in Peshawar.
