Maniappan Raman Kutty, the Malayalee truck driver kidnapped while working on a road project in volatile southern Afghanistan, was “shot dead on Tuesday”, a purported Taliban spokesman claimed, but authorities said they could not confirm it.

The Government of India, reacting to the claim, said on Tuesday night it was ascertaining veracity of reports that suspected Taliban, who had taken MR Kutty hostage four days back, had carried out their threat to execute him. Official sources in New Delhi said: “There is no confirmation. We are cross-checking the reports.”
