Family members of Judith D’Souza, who was abducted from Taimani area of Kabul, on Saturday, said they are hopeful regarding the efforts by the Indian government in bringing her back from Afghanistan.
“There is no update as of now. But the MEA is constantly in touch with us. A Joint Secretary level officer is coordinating with us. We have full faith in the Indian government and the MEA that they will do the needful in bringing back Judith from Afghanistan,” Judith’s brother Jerome told PTI.
When asked whether the details about the efforts being made were discussed with the family members, Jerome said “no, these are official proceedings, which MEA and Indian embassy in Kabul are dealing with. These things are not to be made public.”
External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj had on Friday, called up Judith’s family here and had assured them of making all-out effort to bring her back.
Judith, working for Aga Khan Foundation as senior technical adviser, has been kidnapped by suspected militants right outside her office in the heart of Kabul and effortswere being made to secure her release. She was scheduled to return to India next week.
