Arg, Kabul - H.E. Hamid Karzai, President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, strongly condemned the killing of an Indian engineer.

The enemies of Afghanistan abducted an Indian engineer who worked for an Afghan Telecommunications Company Roshan on the Kabul-Kandahar road in Shahjui district of Zabdul on Friday and subsequently killed him.

In his reaction to the news the President said “The killing of the Indian engineer was, without doubt, the work of the enemies of Afghanistan and I condemn it in the strongest terms.”

“The enemies of Afghanistan, by burning our schools and health clinics and resorting to acts of terrorism, desire to hinder our reconstruction efforts and to stop Afghanistan becoming powerful and capable of standing on its own feet.”

“The terrorists must understand that reconstruction efforts, with the assistance of the international community, will continue in Afghanistan.”

President Karzai, on behalf of the people of Afghanistan, expressed his deepest condolences to the family of the victim and to the brotherly people and Government of the Republic of India.

The President ordered the authorities at the Ministries of Interior and National Defense to identify the perpetrators of this heinous act of terrorism and bring them to justice.
