Father Uzhunnalil was kidnapped in Aden on 4 March, 2016, in an attack in which four Missionaries of Charity and at least 12 others were killed at a home for the aged. The video was posted on a Yemeni news portal and its authenticity could not be ascertained.

Father Tom Uzhunnalil, a priest from Kerala, who was abducted a year ago in Aden, Yemen has appealed for help in the video recording aired by Yemeni news website. His cousin Shajan Thomas confirmed that the person in the video was Fr Tom. "A delegation from the family had met the Abu Dhabi Bishop and the news had appeared in the local dailies". The Office Bearers of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India (CBCI) headed by its President, Cardinal Baselios Cleemis had also met prime minister Narendra Modi in Delhi past year and sought him to personally intervene to rescue the priest from the abductors. "This might have prompted him to thank our efforts", he said.

Bharadwaj claimed that the tampering, in this type of poll manipulation, is possibly done after the EC officials test the machines.

Uzhunnalil said his kidnappers had contacted the Indian government and the Catholic bishop in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates with their demands, but the response was "not encouraging". "My health is deteriorating and I need hospitalisation as early as possible", he said. "May god bless you for that", the priest, with disheveled white hair and beard, was heard pleading. Neither the bishop nor the Indian government authorities ask them what they really want to get me released. "Please, please do what you can to get me released", he adds. Jose K Mani, who is representing Fr Tom's constituency, said: "His folks are anxious about his safety", he said. The priest said that nothing has been done seriously to secure his release.
