NEW DELHI: The Government today said it was in touch with relevant people and authorities in Afghanistan to secure the release of seven Indian engineers who were abducted in the restive northern Baghlan province of the war-torn country on Sunday.

“We are in touch with different people who are involved in the exercise through the Afghan Government,” spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Raveesh Kumar said.

He, however, refused to share any specific details citing sensitivity of the case.
