Judith D'Souza, an Indian woman kidnapped last month from Kabul in Afghanistan, has been rescued, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has said.

"I am happy to inform you that Judith D'Souza has been rescued," Swaraj tweeted this morning.

40-year-old Judith, who works for Agha Khan Foundation - an international NGO - as a senior technical adviser, was kidnapped on June 9 by suspected terrorists right outside her office in the heart of Kabul. Kolkata-based Judith was in Kabul for over a year on her second stint in the Afghan capital.

Swaraj said that Judith is safe and will reach Delhi this evening.
