New Delhi/UNI: India is in touch with all concerned regarding an Afghan-origin Indian national who was abducted at gunpoint from near his shop in Kabul two days ago, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Thursday.

MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi, to a question on the incident, said: “This is an important topic. We have seen the missing person reports; Bansari Lal Arendeh, that he is missing in Kabul. We are in touch with all concerned.”

He said that they have also seen reports about authorities in Kabul undertaking investigation in this matter. “We’ll continue to monitor the situation, and keep you informed of any developments in this regard,” he added.

On Tuesday, Puneet Singh Chandhok, President Indian World Forum, said that he has been informed by the Afghan Hindu Sikh community in Kabul that an Afghan-origin Indian national, known as Bansari Lal Arendeh, aged around 50 years, was abducted on Monday at around 8 a.m. from the vicinity of his shop in Kabul.

Bansari Lal, a resident of Khost, was currently living in Karte Parwan, district -4 of Kabul. He is into the business of pharmaceutical products and was going to the shop when he was abducted. His car was hit from behind and after that he was abducted at gunpoint and driven away in a green-coloured Toyota Corolla, Chandhok said.

The incident took place in the 11th Police district of Kabul.
