The daughter of Afghanistan's ambassador to Pakistan, Silsila Alikhil, was abducted in the middle of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad, held for several hours, and brutally attacked, officials in both countries said Saturday.

According to reports the 27-year-old faced torture at the hands of her kidnappers and is currently under hospital care. The identity of her abductors is still unknown. Afghanistan's foreign ministry has called on Pakistan to take "immediate necessary action" following the incident.

A hospital medical report, seen by The Associated Press, said she suffered blows to her head, had rope marks on her wrists and legs, and was badly beaten. There was a suspicion that she had several broken bones and X-rays were ordered, the report said.

The report also said her abductors held her for over five hours and that she was brought to the hospital in Islamabad by police. There were no details about the abduction itself or the circumstances of her release.

In a strongly-worded statement, the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its deep regret. The ministry said it strongly condemns this heinous act. The Afghan foreign ministry also expressed its deep concern over the safety and security of diplomats, their families, and staff members of the Afghan political and consular missions in Pakistan.

Pakistan called the attack “disturbing” and said that security at the residence of the Afghan ambassador in Islamabad has been reinforced.
