The family of Judith D’Souza, who was rescued after being abducted in Kabul last month, today thanked the Indian government for its efforts to secure her release.
“We are thankful to the Indian government for the rescue of our sister. We are now waiting for her to be back home. We would request the media to respect our privacy,” Judith’s sister Agnes told PTI.
Judith, working for the Aga Khan Foundation as senior technical adviser, was kidnapped from outside her office in Kabul on June 9.
Judith’s family had last month written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging his intervention in ensuring that she is reunited with them.
Modi had requested Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to expedite efforts to secure Judith’s release.
