An Indian doctor, who was kidnapped by the Islamic State group in Libya, has been rescued, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Saturday.

Dr. Ramamurthy Kosanam, a native of Andhra Pradesh’s Krishna district, reportedly sustained bullet injury while he was being rescued.

Sushma said that Dr Kosanam will be brought home soon.

Kosanam was abducted by ISIS in Libya about 18 months ago.

“We have rescued Dr. Ramamurthy Kosanam in Libya. Dr. Kosanam has suffered a bullet injury. We are bringing him to India shortly.

“With this, we have rescued all the six Indians abducted there. I appreciate the good work done by our mission there,” Sushma said in a series of tweet messages.

She has also asked Indian citizens to register with in case of emergency.
