Suryanarayanan beheaded by Taliban

published on April 30, 2006

AFGHANISTAN : The Islamic militants tortured and killed Indian engineer Suryanarayanan last night. Afghan Police found the beheaded body of Suryanarayanan in southern Afghanistan on Sunday morning.


An Afghan highway police patrol found K. Suryanarayana’s body in a field near the highway where the telecommunications engineer was abducted Friday in Zabul province.


Suryanarayana’s wife, Manjula, collapsed on seeing reports of the body’s discovery, while her three children and dozens of well-wishers wailed and cried, many of them clutching pictures of the missing engineer.


“He is the only son of his old parents. He has not done any harm to anybody,” Manjula said at her home in Indian city of Hyderabad.


Suryanarayana, aged in his early 40s, had been employed in Afghanistan since January by a Bahrain-based company, al-Moayed. The company has been contracted by an Afghan mobile phone company, Roshan, to expand its mobile phone network across volatile provinces in southern Afghanistan.
