New Delhi: With the Kenyan government yet to share any information about the whereabouts of the two missing Indian nationals, New Delhi raised the issue on Monday with Kenyan President William Samoei Ruto and called for expediting the investigation into their disappearance.

India’s high commission in Nairobi, Namgyal Khampa called on Ruto to convey India’s deep concern, said the government in a statement.

” We have been in regular touch with the Kenyan government to locate the whereabouts of the two missing Indian nationals, Mohammad Zaid Sami Kidwai and Zulfiqar Ahmed Khan, ” said the ministry of external affairs ( MEA ) spokesperson.

The Kenyan high commissioner here was also called in by the MEA on Oc tober 23. The local media had earlier quoted an aide of the Kenyan president as saying that the two may have been killed. Kenya hasn’t officially conveyed anything to India though. ” Our high commission in Kenya is in touch with the family members of the two Indians and assisting them, ” said the official.

The case is being investigated by the internal affairs unit ( IAU ) of the Kenyan Police. India noted that several people have been taken into custody in this connection including officials of the recently – abolished special service unit of the Kenyan Police.

The specific circumstances surrounding the abduction and subsequent lack of information is very disturbing, said the Indian official.

” We expect that the case will be investigated thoroughly. The ministry continues to monitor all developments related to this case, ” he added.
