Father Alexis PremkumarIndia, June 6, 2014: Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa Thursday sought the personal intervention of PM Narendra Modi in securing the release of the abducted Indian Jesuit aid worker from Herat in Afghanistan.

Noting that Father Alexis Premkumar was on a “humanitarian mission” in Afghanistan when he was kidnapped, she said, “The incident has caused considerable anxiety to his family and friends in Tamil Nadu”.

In a letter to Modi, Jayalalithaa said Premkumar has a “stellar record” of having worked among tribal women and children for their welfare.

“There is a fear that his life may be in mortal danger. Hence I would be grateful if you could kindly intervene personally and take up the matter at the highest level in Afghanisthan so that the local authorities redouble their efforts to secure the safe and early release of Alexis Premkumar,” she said.
