The Afghan ambassador to Pakistan Najibullah Alikhil decried being "forced" to share a picture of his daughter late Saturday night after another woman's picture was incorrectly posted to social media after the news of her abduction broke.
In a tweet, the ambassador apologised for sharing his daughter's, Selsela Alikhil, picture but added that he felt compelled to share it after some other woman's picture was posted incorrectly on social media.

مجبور شوم چی د خپل لورکی سلسله علی خیل عکس دلته خپور کړم، چون په ټولنیزو شبکو کی د کوم بل چا عکس په غلطه نشر شوی، په داسی حال کی چی زه یی اصلأ نه پیژنم. مننه pic.twitter.com/Jjx2vQciKp
The ambassador further tweeted that "yesterday my daughter was kidnapped from Islamabad and beaten heavily, but by Allah blessing escaped. She feels better now."
The ambassador added that the "inhuman attack" was being following by the concerned authorities of both countries.

The ambassador’s daughter was “abducted and "manhandled" by unidentified assailants in Islamabad, the Foreign Office said in a statement on Saturday.
The Afghan foreign ministry, while confirming the incident, claimed that she was "abducted for several hours and severely tortured".
According to the FO, a thorough investigation was launched by Islamabad police as soon as the incident surfaced on Friday.
