Afghanistan ambassador to Pakistan’s daughter was briefly kidnapped and mistreated by unknown assailants, the Afghan government said on Saturday.

Silsila Alikhil was on her way home when she was seized for several hours and “severely tortured”, the Afghan foreign ministry said in a statement, without giving more details of Friday’s abduction in Islamabad, Reuters reported.

“After being released from the kidnappers’ captivity, Alikhil is under medical care at the hospital,” the statement added, urging an investigation and protection for Afghan diplomats.

Pakistan’s ambassador to Kabul was summoned to lodge a formal complaint, the ministry was quoted as saying by Reuters.

Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the Afghan embassy had informed it Alikhil was assaulted while riding in a rented vehicle. Police were investigating the “disturbing incident” and security had been tightened for the ambassador and his family, it said.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted the matter treated as top priority and the culprits caught within 48 hours, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said.
