Afghan Ambassador, his daughter’s cooperation required to wrap up kidnapping case probe: FM Qureshi

Foreign Minister also said the investigators have watched 700 hours of CCTV footage and interrogated 250 people in this case.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the investigation into alleged abduction of the Afghan ambassador’s daughter Selsela Alikhil was near completion.

Speaking to media after Eid ul Adha prayers in Multan today morning, minister the FIR was launched in line with the ambassador’s daughter’s request. FM Qureshi said statements of all taxi drivers, whose services the daughter of the ambassador availed, have been recorded.

He also said the investigators have watched 700 hours of CCTV footage while 250 people were interrogated. Qureshi, however, said the cooperation of the Afghan ambassador and his daughter was needed to wrap up the investigation. Once the investigation is concluded, the report will be shared with Afganistan’s government, he said.

Notably, Afghan Ambassador has been called back by Afghanistan government, consequently, Pakistani investigators were unable to finish the ongoing probe into alleged kidnapping and torture of Selsela Alikhil in her absence.

FM Qureshi said Pakistan wants peace and stability in Afghanistan, and the entire Afghan leadership should join efforts for sustainable peace in the country.

“The Afghan peace process has entered into the crucial phase,” he said, adding: “India is playing the role of spoiler in the process.”

The foreign minister highlighted that the BJP-led government, not only targeted Prime Minister Imran Khan’s number but it also targeted Indian ministers and Opposition lawmaker through Israeli NSO Group’s spyware, Pegasus.

“However, India is facing defeat at every forum,” he said.

The foreign minister said that India is committing brutalities and human rights violations in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and urged the world to take notice.

FM Qureshi said the United States had acknowledged the role of Pakistan in combating terrorism, the Afghan peace process, and the implementation of the Financial Action Task Force’s recommendations.
