SAR-I-PUL (Pajhwok): Officials in northern Sar-i-Pul province on Sunday said the four university students kidnapped two days ago by insurgents have been released following mediation by local elders.

Maj. Gen. Mohammad Asif Jabarkhail, the police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the students had been abducted on the Sar-i-Pul- Suzma-Qala highway.

He did not comment on whether any deal had taken place to secure the release of the students but said they were freed with help of elders and police. The police chief assured with the help of locals no group would disrupt security of the highways in the province.

“People have no longer faced any security threat on this route. And we are working with people to make sure this safety continues,” he added.
