A young man was rescued from kidnappers after 25 days of abduction in Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday, the Taliban-led caretaker administration’s intelligence office said.
“As a result of series of precise operations, personnel of the General Directorate of Intelligence of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan managed to rescue a youngster Mahdi from kidnappers who asked for 6 million U.S. dollars in ransom from his family for his release," said the office in a statement.
The man was rescued in Paghman district, a recreational site west of Kabul, where kidnappings often take place.
The office did not give details if the abductors have been arrested or not.
The Taliban-led administration has vowed to continue crackdown on criminals including thieves, armed robbers and kidnappers.
