The man was kidnapped in Karte Car, Police District 3 of Kabul city.
According to sources the abducted man was an adviser for the agriculture ministry and had been engaged on a gardening project.
Kabul Police Chief’s Spokesman also confirmed the incident, saying the man may be an African.
However, reports suggest, the man was an American citizen and working on a World Bank-affiliated project for the ministry of agriculture.
No group or individual has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.
This comes after a Finnish woman was kidnapped in Police district 7 of Kabul city last month. She was working for a Swedish NGO Operation Mercy and still being held hostage.
