At Kandahar on day the afternoon, 14/15 Taliban militants came and suddenly surrounded us and hands tied up then took us away. They tell me that you talk to your company if they give us $ 200,000 ransom as for your release then obviously we have to release you otherwise If they don't give us ransom as per our requirements, then we have to kill you.

where I worked in Afghanistan the authority of the organization told me they would not pay any ransomed. After hearing such speech, the Taliban militant became agitated, they asked me, from which country you have come to Afghanistan? What is your profession? family status, religion Etc. I calmly answered all of the questions with patience. I was very hungry and tired, I do not know what will be hap pence of my luck end result. This place does not have the right to life or death in this place. This place is just a place of rest aria for the people of the dead. they asked me if they would release me than could I go? I implore them, if you release me with your kindness, then I cordially requesting them, please you would have to drop that place where from you were apprehended me. They kept my request and warn me that you should go back to your country within 4/5 days, we will not be given any second chance later, and obviously we will monitor your movements. They went away. I was afflicted in trauma and physical illness. meanwhile company's authority asked me what should I like to do next? I told them that I won’t to work here with the risk of life, then they told me that according to the agreement definitely you would have to work with us in Afghanistan till June 2016. so, if you would like to go back in your country now then you will not get any benefit from company. Finally, they were forced me to comply with their conditions. I was not able to buy a plane ticket due to the small amount of money. I left my luggage in the Kabul airport of Afghanistan. Finally, I arrived in Dhaka and returned to my family. I imagined that, I will have go to out of the country for job but I have not been comply my dream. I have suffered a lot of physical and mentally stress along financial problems also. I have taken long time to get back to lead a normal life, till now, when I remember that day of the horror I feel scared very uneasy. Returning from Afghanistan I was unemployed for a long time. then pursue a job for survive. stile now I have in trouble, but understand the situation over time I able to cope and adapt myself to this situation. but I couldn't expect such.
