JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): Unidentified gunmen kidnapped an official of the Afghanistaninfo-icon Stabilisation Programme (ASP) in the eastern province of Nangarhar, an official said on Thursday.

Faizullah, the ASP chief for Khogyani district, was on his way to Jalalabad from his office late Wednesday evening, when the gunmen disembarked him from his car in the Bawli area of Surkhrod district.

District chief, Haji Mohammad Hassan, said the official had been taken to an unknown location. However, he promised Faizullah would be freed in a couple of days.

Surkhrod police chief, Lt. Col. Sahib Khan, said police had launched a search operation to free the captive, whose whereabouts remained unknown so far.
