Islamabad: A former governor of Afghanistan's Herat province has been kidnapped from a market in an upscale district of Islamabad, Pakistani police said on Saturday.
Pakistan is in the grip of a homegrown Taliban insurgency but the tightly-guarded capital has a very low crime rate in general and the F-7/2 sector where Sayed Fazlullah Wahidi was seized is a high security area that houses politicians, bureaucrats and expats.
Wahidi was going to a restaurant in the market with his grandson on Friday evening when he was abducted by unidentified men, a police official, who requested anonymity, the boy reported the kidnapping to the local police station and said Wahidi was in Islamabad to apply for a British visa, police said.
"We have registered a case against kidnapping of the former Afghan governor and the case is being investigated," Zia-ul-Qamar, a spokesman for the Islamabad police.
