Dear Madam Soniaji,

I refer to the following news item concerning the kidnapping of an Indian man by Taliban in Afghanistan and I trust this time the Government of India and the President will use every effort to save his life and to have him released and not be killed like an earlier case:
Taliban kidnap Indian contractor

Kandahar: Taliban militants kidnapped an Indian mobile phone contractor in southern Afghanistan on Friday, according to a provincial official and the Taliban's purported spokesman.

An Indian engineer working for the Roshan company was held up at gun point at 5 pm (1900 IST) as he was driving on the Kandahar-Kabul highway in the Hassan Kariez district of southern Zabul province, said Ali Khail, a provincial government spokesman.

Khail did not say how he knew the kidnapping took place, saying only that officials had notified him of the abduction.

Qari Yousaf Ahmadi, a purported spokesman for the Taliban, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the Indian had been taken hostage and that "higher authorities" within the Taliban would soon decide on the captive's fate.

India's ambassador to Kabul, Rakesh Sood, said he had heard reports of a kidnapping but was trying to confirm it.
Thank you and with best wishes,

Yours truly,
