7 Pakistani engineers kidnapped in Logar

Dec 01, 2011 - 11:17

PUL-I-ALAM (PANinfo-icon): Unidentified gunmen kidnapped seven Pakistani engineers in the central province of Logar, officials said on Thursday.

The engineers working on building a 300-bed Naib Aminullah Khan Logari Hospital were kidnapped in the Syed Habibullah village on Wednesday evening while returning from the site to the capital city.

Provincial police chief Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai told Pajhwok Afghan News the driver of the engineers was under interrogation.

Public Healthinfo-icon Director Dr. Mohammad Zarif Naib confirmed the incident, saying since Pakistaninfo-icon is reconstructing the building, most of the workers are Pakistanis. 

"I was shopping in the city when a group of motorcyclists kidnapped seven people," a witness, Syed Enayatullah, said. The masked men also beat the engineers, he added.

No group has so far asserted responsibility for the abduction.
