Unidentified kidnappers bundled the deputy governor of Afghanistan's northwestern province of Kunar into a car in the Pakistani city of Peshawar and took him away, police sources said on Sunday.

Mohammad Nabi Ahmadi had crossed over from Afghanistan into Pakistan with his brother and was walking down a road in the northwestern city of Peshawar when a car with tinted windows pulled up and overpowered the Afghan official, according to a Peshawar police source.

The police source said Ahmadi's brother recounted the episode to Pakistani police, but did not disclose that his brother was a high-ranking Afghan provincial government official.

"It was afterwards we came to know from other sources that he was deputy governor of Kunar," said the police official.
