Two Indians missing in Kenya: Indian probe team visits Nairobi, says MEA
On Thursday, the Ministry of External Affairs said an Indian investigation team visited Nairobi earlier this month and offered all possible help to Kenyan authorities.
Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, said two Indians have been missing since July 23.
Kenyan authorities are still looking into this case. The Indian investigation team met with the Kenyan public prosecution departments and criminal investigation from November 1-3,” Bagchi said.
According to him, the Indian team offered to assist the Kenyan side in this case, including providing assistance in DNA or forensic analysis as needed to carry out its investigations.
“We are closely following the developments in this case and are also in touch with the affected Indian families,” he said.
A close aide to the Kenyan President claimed last month that former media executive Zulfiqar, missing in Kenya since July, was killed along with another Indian national. Following the meeting, the Indian High Commissioner expressed “deep concern” and requested that investigations be expedited.
The case is expected to be thoroughly investigated, as the Ministry of External Affairs had previously stated that the specific circumstances “surrounding the abduction and the subsequent lack of information” were “very concerning”.
