FAIZABAD (PANinfo-icon): The fate of the police officer who was abducted on Saturday in the Yawan district of northeastern Badakhshan province is not yet known, an official told Pajhwok on Monday.

Hussain Ali, a Yawan district police officer, was kidnapped by unknown men in Faizabad City while transporting three months’ worth of the district policemen’s salaries from Kabulinfo-icon to Yawan, provincial crime branch chief Col. Fazal Ahmad Nazari said.
Maj. Gen. Sayed Hassan Safawi, Badakhshan acting police chief, confirmed the incident, saying that 530000 afs were recovered from Ali’s living room in a police search after his abduction.
Safawi said that there were 315000 afs with Hussain Ali when he was abducted.
The police officer called police headquarters half an hour after he was abducted, but did not know where his captors were taking him, he added.
The police crime branch chief said, “A search operation has been launched in to the incident, but there have been no clues so far as to his whereabouts.”
