Mangalore, May 28 (UNI) It was an inexplicable horrible experience for 37 year-old Sarang Mohammed Naeem who was kidnapped by the 'unknown abductors' and remained captive for 27 days walking on the mountain ranges on the border of Iran without proper food, shelter or bath.
Briefing his horrible experience with UNI at his 'Sarang House' at Suralpady near Gurupura-Kaikamba, about 28 kms from here today he said, I cannot explain the horrible and hell of the situation which I and my Nepali associate underwent during the 27 days of captivity.
We were not allowed to speak among ourselves, nor even allowed to take bath or wash our mouth daily by the kidnappers. My two cell phones and some cash I carried were taken, he said.
Mr Naeem, who seemed to be tired and not yet overcome by the worst experience, said that it was because of the efforts by both the Indian and Afghan government besides his boss and Director of HEB Logistics company where he was working made both of them to rescue from the hands of the kidnappers and return safely.
Giving a detailed account of the incident, Mr Naeem, an electrical engineer and chief operation manager at HEB Logistics, said that when himself and his Nepali associate K P Gurang were coming back to the camp at Adras in Afghanistan in the vehicle with an Afghan driver on April 21, four unidentified abductors surrounded their vehicle on the highway and taken them to their vehicle boot after tying hands and blindfolded. After traveling for some time, the kidnappers asked the Afghan drivers to get down from the vehicle and go back.
Then we traveled for over one and half hour, our eye covers were removed and they handcuffed us and traveled by foot for three days with small amount of food and supplied with the rationed bottled water. We were during the journey served with some Afghan dry fruits, grass and black tea once in a day. On the third day of our captivity, we were allowed to speak to our family and our Director to only convey the message that we are safe, he said.
