India to send commandos to rescue kidnapped engineers

Sify reports that India is sending commandos to protect Indian installations and also to rescue kidnapped engineers. If this is indeed true, I think the folks in New Delhi have developed a backbone. Bravo!

A spokesman for the ousted Taliban militia said they are likely to kill the two road workers “because they are not Muslims”. Afghan officials said the pair were kidnapped after shopping with Afghan colleagues for chickens in Bazargan village five km from the highway near Shahjoy, 280 km southwest of Kabul.

By the way, the two guys work for Seenaiah & Co, an Andhra Pradesh based contractor.
