The Afghan government has summoned Pakistan’s ambassador in Kabul to express concerns over the kidnapping of former governor of Herat province in Islamabad, Afghan foreign ministry said in a statement. Unidentified men on Friday ‘kidnapped’ Sayed Fazlullah Wahidi, who was out shopping with his 12-year-old grandson at the Rana Market, Afghan embassy in the federal capital said in a police report. “Afghanistan Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil Karzai called Pakistan ambassador Syed Abrar Hussain to the foreign ministry and shared his deep concerns at the kidnapping of Sayed Fazalullah Wahidi, former governor of Heart in Islamabad,” an Afghan foreign ministry statement read. The influential Afghan leader had earlier arrived in Islamabad, along with his family, to get visas to travel to UK as British embassy in Kabul does not directly issue visas to Afghan nationals.
