First female missing journalist returns home after two years

22 October 2017

Zeenat Shahzadi, the journalist who went missing in Lahore in 2015, has been recovered by security forces, Dawn reported quoting officials.

Reacting to the news of Ms. Shahzadi's rescue close to the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Ms. Ansari said she felt like showering all her love on the journalist.

The retired judge said tribal elders of Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had assisted in the journalist's recovery. "My sister is missing and my younger brother (Saddam) who was deeply attached to her hanged himself after losing hope to get reunited with her", Shahzadi's brother Salman Latif had told PTI.

Human rights activist Hina Jillani, in a 2016 interview with BBC Urdu, alleged that Shahzadi had once told her family that she had been "forcibly taken away by security agencies", detained for four hours and questioned about Hamid.

"Non-state actors and anti-state agencies had abducted her and she has been rescued from their custody", Iqbal said.

26-year-old journalist Zeenat Shahzadi was abducted on August 19, 2015 from Lahore while she was on the way to work. "I am thrilled that she is home safe".

"Zeenat received threats from unknown persons who asked her not to pursue the case any more".

"At the time of her disappearance, Shahzadi was working to find Nehal Hamid Ansari, an Indian citizen who disappeared in Pakistan in 2012".

In 2015, Zeenat had filed an application with the Pakistan Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Hamid's mother Fauzia Ansari.

Zeenat, whose brother had committed suicide after her abduction, was reunited with her family in Lahore. "She first obtained all the details about Hamid's case and confirmed that his intentions were not mala fide, though he did try to enter Pakistan illegally". We also asked her not to put her life at risk but she said she wanted to help Ansari out of humanity. "I don't even know what what condition she was in for the past two years and what she might have gone through", Ms. Ansari said.
