Close on the heels of the killing of two abducted Sikhs by Taliban in the restive tribal belt, the case of kidnapping of a Pakistani Hindu has come to light.

The victim, Robin Singh, was abducted by unknown persons from a market on the University Road in Peshawar in broad daylight on last Friday, an official statement said.

President Asif Ali Zardari condemned the kidnapping of the Hindu man and asked authorities to take steps for his recovery.

The incident comes to light days after the recovery of the beheaded bodies of two abducted Sikhs -- Mahal Singh and Jaspal Singh -- in Pakistan's tribal belt.

Another two to four Sikhs are still being held by the Taliban.

The kidnapping and killing of the Sikhs has been condemned by leaders of Pakistan's minority Sikh community.
