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.
