Ayaz Jamali, who is a petroleum engineer, a 26 years old Pakistani. He was working in Dar Petroleum’s Palouch Oil field in South Sudan. He got kidnapped on Sunday with three other local workers.

Mr. Jamali was a field worker and was on duty when rebels from Riek Macchar Group abducted him at gunpoint. Riek Macchar is an anti-militant Group who kidnapped Jamali from Juba Town.  It has been reported that Macchar Group is having a fight against the government due to which they already kidnapped two Indian engineers last week.

Ayaz Jamali completed his graduation from Jamshoro in 2014 from Mehran University of Engineering. Later on, in 2014, he sent a proposal to join the same company in September. The innocent was a resident of Badin, Sindh.

Jamali brother also works in the same company and informed the family about the Ayaz Jamali. He told that the conflict between anti-Government forces and pro-government is increasing day by day which is making the circumstances in the country worse.

Because of the worse conditions going on in the city, Ayaz Jamali planned to resign from the job. However, he did so and had a flight last Monday to Pakistan. He was on his duty on the last day he was kidnapped, Said Babar Jamali.

The family has filed a report and appealed Pakistan’s Federal Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan to take proper measure on this issue. The matter must be taken on diplomatic levels with Government of South Sudan for safe and early recovery of Ayaz Hussain Jamali.

The parents of Ayaz Jamali said Pakistani authorities or any humanitarian organization is not taking the matter seriously. The family has appealed the amnesty international, Government of Pakistan and other organizations to ensure the safety of the Pakistani engineer.
