Libya: Abducted Indian national released, says Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi: An Indian national abducted in Libya in March has been released, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Wednesday.

“Indian Embassy in Libya has secured the release of Regi Joseph, an Indian national from Kerala,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

She said this became possible due to the efforts of Azar AH Khan, India's ambassador to Libya.

Joseph, who hails from Kozhikode in Kerala, was working as a computer engineer near the Libyan capital. He had been there for two years with his nurse wife and three children.

The last contact Joseph had with his wife was on 31 March through an SMS, saying he would be delayed returning home.
