New Delhi: Indian woman development worker Judith D’Souza who was kidnapped last month by gunmen in the Afghanistan capital has finally returned to India.
Judith D’Souza, 40, who works for the Agha Khan Network, an NGO, was seized around midnight on June 9 last month in Qala-e-Fatullah area of Kabul. A leading news agency said Afghan security agencies did not comment on the abduction.
D’Souza was bound to leave for India soon when she was abruptly kidnapped by gunmen in Kabul. Her family in Kolkata had urged the Indian and the Afghan government to act fast to secure her release.
