NEW DELHI, June 10 (Xinhua) -- A 40-year-old Indian woman working with a well-known international non-government organization has been kidnapped in Afghanistan, sources said Friday.
"Judith D'Souza was kidnapped in Kabul late on Thursday night. Officials of the Indian Embassy in the Afghan capital are coordinating with authorities there to get her released," the sources said.
The kidnapping came barely a month after India had issued an advisory for its nationals living in Afghanistan or visiting the country, urging them to take adequate security precautions.
"All Indians residing and travelling to Afghanistan are advised that the security situation in the country remains highly volatile," the statement said.
It added: "Terrorist attacks have taken place in the country against foreigners and are expected to continue. There is also the risk of kidnapping and hostage taking throughout the Afghanistan."
