Anatomy of an Abduction: How the Indian Hostages in Iraq were Freed by V. Sudarshan

'It was a bizarre situation. The negotiators were in position in Iraq. The kidnappers and the kidnapped were in Iraq. At the crucial moment, the transport company in Kuwait expressed reservations about the ransom.' In July 2004, a convoy of KGL trucks drove into Iraq from Kuwait carrying eledronic equipment for the American occupiers, when the worst happened-three Indian drivers, three Kenyans and an Egyptian were ambushed, detained by unknown Iraqi dissidents and accused of collaborating with the Americans. A deadline was set for their execution. The countdown had begun. The abdudion drama that ensued had all the ingredients of a thriller: nail-biting suspense, high profile media coverage, intemational outrage at the plight of these humble workers, and political tightrope-walking. This gripping behind-the-scenes narration recounts what really happened in Baghdad when a team of negotiators was sent there and entered into secret talks through an intermediary whose very existence was not in public domain. Anatomy of an Abduction reveals for the first time the Indian crisis management team's handling of the situation over forty-four days in occupied, lawless Iraq. The book gives an insight into the pressures that governments have to face as more and more innocent people become pawns in global chess games.
