MAIDAN SHAHAR (Pajhwok): Talibaninfo-icon gunmen kidnapped the district executive officer for Sayedabad of central Maidan Wardak province, an official said Wednesday.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the incident took place in Sray Kala area of the district late Tuesday.

Executive officer Izatullah 26 was kidnapped by militants when he was on his way home from office, he said, adding that Izatullah had been working as district executive officer for the past three years.

However, influential and tribal elders have geared up their efforts to release the official unharmed, he added.

Taliban, however, have not yet commented on the incident.
