Rights activists, media persons welcome return of abducted Pakistani woman journalist

A Pakistani journalist who went missing two years ago while following an Indian citizen's case has been found, according to officials.

Pakistan's Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances (CIED) Chief Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal on Friday evening said the journalist was rescued from a region located along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border on Thursday night. She was allegedly kidnapped by unidentified men while she was on her way to work in an autorickshaw from her home in Lahore on August 19, 2015.

The Journalist's family had assumed her to be dead but at last she had been rescued by security forces.

A few months later, news surfaced in a section of the media, saying that Hamid had been sentenced to three years' imprisonment on charges of espionage.

The 25-year-old freelance reporter had earlier raised her voice for missing persons in Pakistan. She knew that her son had gone to Afghanisatan in search of a job in November 2012. She took the statement of Ansari and filed the petition in human rights cell of Supreme Court for his recovery. Zeenat had travelled to Kohat and discovered that Ansari had been in police custody.

The family of Zeenat was devastated after her kidnapping by intelligencve agencies.

In March 2016, Zeenat Shahzadi's heart-broken brother Saddam also committed suicide at the abduction of her sister. Her elder brother, Salman, had told the Dawn that Hussain was disturbed due to their sister's disappearance. He formed a relationship with a Pakistani woman over Facebook, and panicked when she told him that her parents were pushing her to marry someone else. "In addition to the missing persons' crisis, Pakistan ranks sixth in the Committee to Protect Journalists' list of the 20 deadliest countries for journalists in the world, and as the ninth worst country in the world for impunity for crimes against journalists", it said.

The case described that Hamid Ansari, lives in Mumbai was arrested for illegally entering Pakistan from Afghanistan reportedly to meet a girl he had befriended online.
