The Indian national, who was working for an worldwide food services company in Afghanistan, was among three foreigners killed by unidentified gunmen after they were abducted from capital city Kabul.

"At this stage we think it is a terrorist incident", Stanikzai separately told AFP. No group has so far claimed to be behind the killings.

"The Malaysian individual, who was working in Kabul, was kidnapped along with two other foreign nationals earlier this week". While it mainly affects Afghans abducted for ransom, foreigners have also been targeted, either by criminals looking for ransom or by militant groups. The company has not yet commented.

"They were shot dead and their bodies were found inside a auto", said Nusrat Rahimi, deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

According to local media reports, armed men took off the foreigners from their vehicle around 8.30 a.m. local time (9.30 a.m. IST) and abducted them in a Toyota Corolla at the industrial park area of 9th Police District in Kabul.

It manages canteens and facilities for offices, the military, schools, hospitals and prisons.
