A Pakistani engineer who had been abducted in Afghanistan earlier this year has been rescued by the country's army, the media reported on Wednesday.

Malik Faiz Ahmed, a resident of Rawalpindi, had been abducted on August 21. The engineer had been working on the Torkham-Jalalabad road project in Afghanistan when he was kidnapped.

He returned home on Wednesday after 105 days, his son told Dawn News.

"My father has returned in good health," Farhan Malik said.

It is not clear under what terms and circumstances his release was secured.
