Mirwais Salehi, the provincial in-charge of Logan Road Construction Company was kidnapped from Ghalmin village five days ago, deputy police chief, Col. Abdur Rashid Basher, said this news agency. 
A search operation involving police and area residents was underway, but no clue to Salehi’s whereabouts has been found so far, he said.
