Efforts on to rescue abducted Indian priest in Yemen: Govt
cancel

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Saturday has tweeted diplomatic efforts at various levels are on to ensure the safe return of Catholic priest Tom Uzhunnalil, currently in a terror group in Yemen.

“An Indian national from Kerala was abducted by a terror group in Yemen. We r making all efforts to secure his release,” said Sushma.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy's office is closely monitoring the situation and is in touch with the ministry of external affairs and people concerned in Yemen and other countries.

"We are unable to reveal all details, but there is intense activity taking place at various levels and in various countries to ensure that the Keralite priest is rescued," said an official posted in Chandy's office, who is coordinating between various agencies.

"We are all hopeful that things will be resolved," said the official.

Earlier this month, armed militants barged into an old people's home set up by Mother Teresa near Yemen in 1992 and shot dead many, including four nuns of the Missionaries of Charity, including one from India.

These militants later whisked away the Kerala priest and there has been no word from him ever since.
