Taliban militants killedThe provincial Hajj and Religious Affairs chief Qazi Fazal Ahmad was kidnapped by militants in central Maidan Wardak province of Afghanistan.

Deputy provincial governor, Mohammad Ali Ahmadi, said Qazi Fazal Ahmad was on his way from Ghazni province to capital Kabul when he was abducted by militants.

Ahmadi further added that two others including Qazi Ahmad’s driver and employee of Ghazni Hajj and Religious Affairs directorate were also kidnapped.

He said Qazi Ahmad was visiting Kabul to coordinate the Hajj pilgrimage program for Ghazni residents.

No group including the Taliban militants has so far claimed responsibility behind the abduction of Qazi Fazal Ahmad.

Both Ghazni and Maidan Wardak are among the volatile provinces where anti-government armed militant groups are actively operating and frequently carry out insurgency activities.

The anti-government armed militants are usually targeting the government officials and employees who are travelling on main Kabul-Kandar highway that links capital Kabul with the eastern and southern provinces.

Taliban militants abducted at least 25 university lecturers and students from Ghazni province while they were travelling from Kandahar to Kabul city earlier in June.
