An Indian national was kidnapped in Patikul, Sulu last Wednesday, three days after a construction engineer was released by Abu Sayyaf kidnappers in Basilan.
A military report identified the latest kidnap victim as Biju Kolara Veettil, 36, who is married to a Tausug woman named Elena Ladjamuddin Asanji.

There were no other details on how Veettil was snatched by the kidnappers.
The military are still trying to determine how Veettil was abducted and who are behind the kidnapping.

Police have launched pursuit operations hoping that they may catch up with the kidnappers and rescue the Indian national.
Last June 19, Engr. Virgilio Fernandez of the Mace Construction, a contractor firm undertaking a road project in Basilan, was freed by kidnappers after 16 days in captivity. — Dan Toribio Jr.
