Abduction of Alexis Prem Kumar, SJ

 

Alexis Prem Kumar, SJ. Alexis Prem Kumar S.J., the country director for the Jesuit Refugee Service, was abducted by a group of unidentified men in western Afghanistan. According to sources, he had accompanied teachers on a visit to a JRS-supported school for the returnee refugees in Sohadat township, 34 km from the city of Herat. He was kidnapped from the school as he was about to return to Herat.

"We are deeply shocked by Prem's abduction. We are in contact with all the relevant authorities and doing everything possible to ensure his safe and speedy return. Meanwhile, our prayers are with Prem and his family and friends at this difficult time,” said Jesuit Refugee Service International Director, Peter Balleis S.J.
