Father Alexis Prem Kumar was kidnapped by Taliban in Afghanistan last June. 8 months later, he was freed after govt intervened.
Prime minister’s success in securing the release of a priest from the Afghan Taliban points to India’s new clout.
‘The incident has caused considerable anxiety to his family and friends in Tamil Nadu’, said Jayalalithaa.
EAM has already denied that Kumar had any connection with the Indian government.
