Indians Abducted in Afghanistan – Why No News is a Bad News?



The kith and kins of Indian citizens kidnapped in Afghanistan’s Baghlan province, most likely by Taliban militia, on 7th May 2018 are concerned about their safety. The Government of India has not shared any news with them since 15th June, when they met Indian External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj. Has the Indian government gone slow on negotiations with the Taliban? Are the abductees alive and out of danger?

“We have not heard anything after the meeting with Indian MEA where we were assured that our family members were abducted in Afghanistan due to a rivalry between two belligerent groups and that they would be set free after Ramzan. The MEA officials told us that abductors did not want to talk with the government, but only with the relatives. “However, it is over a month now, and nothing has happened.

The relatives spoke to The Sunday Guardian only after a lot of persistence because the MEA officials warned them not to interact with the media as it would be “dangerous for the abductees”.

As reported by EurAsian Times reported earlier, unknown armed men, believed to members of Taliban, abducted seven employees of an Indian company, KEC, in the Baghlan province of Afghanistan. Six Indian employees of KEC and one Afghan employee of the company were kidnapped in Bagh-e-Shamal village, of the Pul-e-Khomre city capital of Baghlan province. According to local officials, the incident occurred while the staff members of KEC were travelling to the area, where the organization maintains an electricity sub-station.

Looking at the fate of 39 Indians who were abducted and later killed in Iraq, delayed negotiations with the Taliban or affiliated groups might prove to be fatal. The terrorist organizations have seldom carried on the burden of low profile abductees for an elongated period, and thus the Indian government needs to act fast, before its too late.
