Afghan provincial deputy governor allegedly goes missing from Peshawar

Afghan provincial deputy governor allegedly goes missing from Peshawar”

"Yes, I can confirm that the deputy governor of eastern Kunar province, Qazi Muhammad Nabi Ahmadi, has been abducted from Peshawar", the diplomat said. Many Afghans live in Peshawar and it is also common for influential figures in Afghanistan to have business or family links in the Pashtun regions of Pakistan. Capital City Police Officer Tahir Khan said that an investigation team had been constituted to find the Afghan official.

According to the local media outlets in Pakistan, the Afghan Consulate has approached the Foreign Office to determine the whereabouts of the missing Afghan deputy governor.

It is unclear who is behind the kidnapping.

No group has claimed responsibility. Afghan officials have also not blamed anyone, insisting they want early recovery of the official.

The deputy governor was in Peshawar for a medical treatment.

Pakistani officials were informed regarding the incident after the contact between FO and the foreign mission.

"There, he was abducted by unidentified gunmen and we still haven't heard anything about him", Marastyal said.

Peshawar serves as the main hub of medical treatment for Afghans living in the provinces along the Pakistani border.

"It was afterwards we came to know from other sources that he was deputy governor of Kunar", said the police official.
