The Taliban-led caretaker administration’s intelligence office on Wednesday said a young man was rescued from kidnappers after 25 days of abduction in Afghan capital Kabul.

“As a result of series of precise operations, personnel of the General Directorate of Intelligence (GDI) of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan managed to rescue a youngster Mahdi from kidnappers,” who asked for 6 million U.S. dollars in ransom from his family for his release, said the office in a statement.

The man was rescued in Paghman district, a recreational site west of Kabul, where kidnappings often take place.
