New Delhi: An Indian national abducted in Libya in March has been released, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Wednesday.
The External affairs miniter shared the information on Twitter:
She said this became possible due to the efforts of Azar A.H. Khan, India’s ambassador to Libya.
Thanking the Foreign Affairs minister, Regi’s brother said, “I thank the External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj. Necessary action should now be taken to bring him back here.”
Joseph, who hails from Kozhikode in Kerala, was working as a computer engineer near the Libyan capital. He had been there for two years with his nurse wife and three children.
The last contact Joseph had with his wife was on March 31 through an SMS, saying he would be delayed returning home.
