Unidentified gunmen on Friday allegedly abducted an ailing Afghani deputy provincial governor from north-western Pakistan, the official said on Saturday.
According to Afghan Consul General Moin Mrastyal, deputy governor of Kunar, Muhammad Nabi Ahmadi was abducted from Dabgar Garden area of Peshawar on Friday.
The deputy governor was in Peshawar for a medical treatment.
When the Afghan consulate asked the Pakistan Foreign Office to trace the politician, the security officials became clueless.
Afghan diplomats have sought help to locate the missing deputy governor, an official from the Foreign Office confirmed.
Peshawar serves as the main hub of medical treatment for Afghans living in the provinces along the Pakistani border.
It is also home to thousands of Afghan refugees who live in the suburban areas and make a living by doing various jobs in the city.
