Kidnapped Indian aid worker freed in Afghanistan


NEW DELHI: An Indian priest has been freed in Afghanistan eight months after he was kidnapped by unidentified gunmen, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday. India has “secured the release” of aid worker Alexis Prem Kumar who was snatched in Afghanistan’s western province of Herat last June while visiting a school, Modi said in a series of tweets. “Delighted at securing the release of Indian Jesuit priest Father Alexis Prem Kumar from captivity in Afghanistan,” Modi said.
