Seven Indians abducted in Libya released

NEW DELHI: The government announced on Monday that the seven Indian construction workers who had been abducted from Asshwerif in Libya last month have been released. The foreign ministry reiterated there was a ban on travel of Indians to Libya, irrespective of purpose, since May 2016 because of the security situation.
“Our ambassador to Tunisia Puneet Roy Kundal spoke to them over phone after they were handed over by the abductors to the company Al Shola Al Mudia. All of them are in good health,” the MEA said. The Indian nationals, from Andhra, Bihar, Gujarat and UP, were kidnapped from Asshwerif on September 14 when they were on their way to the Tripoli airport to catch a flight to India.
