Pakistani journalist Zeenat Shahzadi allegedly kidnapped since two years, rescued

Missing Pakistani journalist Zeenat Shahzadi found near border with Afghanistan say officials

The rescue on Friday of a Pakistani journalist, Zeenat Shahzadi, who disappeared two years ago while working for the release of an Indian youth, Hamid Ansari, was greeted with relief and hope by his mother, Fauzia Ansari, here. After obtaining a special power of attorney, she had been working relentlessly for his release till she disappeared in August 2015.

This application by Zeenat had forced the Pak security agencies to admit that Ansari was in their custody.

Well-known Pakistani journalist and rights activist Beena Sarwar tweeted about Shahzadi being found: "Thrilled that the disappeared activist-journalist Zeenat Shehzadi is home safe".

He also points out that the tribals from Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa provinces have played a key role in her recovery.

Ansari who has been missing since November 2012 was arrested for illegally entering Pakistan from Afghanistan to meet an online friend.

Hamid Ansari, a 27-year-old engineer and management graduate from Mumbai, went missing in Pakistan in 2013.

Shahzadi's disappearance once again came to the fore in 2016 when news broke that her brother had committed suicide. She had filed an application with the Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Fauzia Ansari, Hamid Ansari's mother.

Another 45 people were reportedly injured in the attack that follows the attack on another Shia mosque in Kabul on September 29. Two auto bombs exploded at the gate of the police headquarters, Danish said.

She recalled the effort and integrity displayed by Ms. Shahzadi.

He was awarded three-year jail term by a Pak military court.

Soon after this, Zeenat had started receiving threat calls from unknown persons who told her not to pursue Ansari's case. After taking this assignment he said he would continue as the chief of the missing persons' commission.

"Pakistan's intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), has been known to target journalists".

"The Commission on Enforced Disappearances works under the jurisdictions of the federal government and has no authority over the country's security agencies".

According to Shahzadi's elder brother Salman, their younger brother Saddam Hussain had killed himself out of grief for his sister.
