London, England: A Pakistani Christian man Cedric Sunil Kenneth has been reportedly kidnapped by the extremists two months ago, but the news kept secret until last night as the family spokesperson Rev. Yousaf Sabir broke the silence by sharing the emotional news on Glory TV's Awam Show with Taskeen Khan.
"The kidnappers have demanded a ransom of 20 lakh of Pakistani rupees, about £11,700, and not accepting the demand, they have threatened the family to handing over Cedric Sunil Kennet to the Pakistani Taliban", told Rev. Yousaf Sabir.
He added: "We appeal to the entire Christian community to pray for Cedric's safety and release".
