KANDAHAR, Afghanistan – Afghan police on Wednesday found the decapitated body of an Indian man who Taliban insurgents said they kidnapped and executed, a provincial official said.
The body of the engineer, who had been working on a road project, was found on a dirt road in the southern province of Nimroz, said Mohammad Hashim, a district chief in the province.
“Police have found the body of the Indian national and I can confirm that he has been killed,” Hashim told Reuters.
The young man had been beheaded, according to Amanullah Khan, chief of highway police in the province.
The head was placed with the body and a note, apparently written in English was also found, Khan said.
