In all, six people have been rescued so far and now only one Indian citizen is in the possession of the Taliban.Also readThe Taliban and the government's ceasefire in Afghanistan before Eid had raised hopes that all three could be freed from Taliban occupation. But only two can be rescued at the moment. In May 2018, seven Indians and their Afghan driver were abducted by a Taliban faction while they were working on a power project in Afghanistan's North Baglan province. In return, a demand was made for ransom and the release of some Taliban prisoners in Afghanistan jails. After the talks, a kidnapped Indian was released by the Taliban in March 2019, while the other three were released from Bagram prison in October 2019 after releasing 11 Taliban militants from the US military occupation.The release of the last Indian hostage is believed to be a problem because the President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, stopped the release of 400 Taliban detainees accused of serious crimes, saying that the country's constitution does not allow it. However, according to experts, he has called the Loya Jirga (assembly) on August 7 to take a decision in this matter. This meeting can be important for the release of the last Indian hostage.The Foreign Ministry of India has thanked the Government of Afghanistan for their continued support in rescuing the Indian hostages.
