New Delhi, July 23 (ANI): Judith D'Souza, an Indian woman who was abducted from Kabul in Afghanistan last month and later rescued, arrived at the 7 RCR here on Saturday evening to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

D'Souza, who works for Agha Khan Foundation as a senior technical adviser, was rescued more than a month after she was kidnapped in Kabul on June 9th.

40-year-old D'Souza arrived in Delhi this evening, accompanied by India's Ambassador to Afghanistan, Manpreet Vohra.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had earlier assured Judith's family about the government making all efforts to rescue her.

Aghnes D'souza, Judith's sister, had expressed her gratitude to the Government of India and especially to Minister Swaraj for their efforts to rescue her.

In the past month, the family had also written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to do the utmost in securing her release.

PM Modi had requested Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to expedite the efforts to rescue Judith. (ANI)
