The fate of a Polish engineer kidnapped in Pakistan Sept. 28 remains unknown. The man worked in Pakistan for a Polish company called Geofizyka Kraków. He was abducted about 200 km southwest of Islamabad. The armed attackers killed the three Pakistanis who were with him: two drivers and a bodyguard. According to as yet unconfirmed information, he was kidnapped by Pakistani Taliban who have allegedly demanded release for their comrades in return for his freedom. The Polish foreign ministry has said that "appropriate services" are in touch with Pakistani authorities at all levels.

Geofizyka Kraków, a company based in Cracow, plans to bring its other 18 employees working in Pakistan back to Poland. Company's CEO Leopold Sułkowski says the families of the three Pakistanis who were killed have been provided with financial assistance.

The Polish engineer handled measuring equipment in Pakistan and has worked for Geofizyka Kraków for many years. In Pakistan the company was hired by a local state-run firm drilling for natural gas.
