The husband of Kakar, Mohammad Dawood, is refuting reports that she has been abducted by insurgents and said that reports of her kidnapping while traveling between Kandahar and Kabul were "propaganda. He said his wife left for Turkey on August 10 as part of an official visit planned by the parliament.
But the head of the local assembly in Kandahar Province, Saeed Jan Khakrezwal, says Kakar's husband is mistaken. He said that Kakar stayed in Kandahar during Ramadan and did not go to Turkey. He also said Kakar's four children, her driver, and a cook also were kidnapped by gunmen as they were traveling through Ghazni Province. Khakrizwal further added that Fariba Kakar was abducted by armed robbers, and she has been kidnapped for ransom.
