Journalist Shahzadi recovered from border area

Zeenat Shahzadi, who disappeared in 2015 while working on the case of a missing Indian national in Pakistan, has been recovered by security forces, officials said on Friday.

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. 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 two had been in touch on daily basis before her kidnapping.

Meanwhile, Zeenat's family had told the human rights activists while she was amiss that the security agencies had once forcibly taken her away and detained for about fours during which she was questioned about Hamid Ansari.

. It has been revealed that some non-actors and enemy agencies had kidnapped her back then.

Human rights activist Beena Sarwar stated to media that Journalist Shahzadi today has been reunited with her family in Lahore and we are happy for her safe recovery. She had filed an application with the Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Fauzia Ansari, Hamid's mother.

Shahzadi, who had spoken up against the disappearance of people, went missing in August 2015 while on the trail of an Indian citizen Hamid Ansari who, it was reported, had been caught by Pakistani agencies.

Ms Shahzadi's younger brother Saddam committed suicide in March 2016 following her disappearance. He is accused of entering Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa region illegally from Afghanistan to meet and marry a Pashtun girl. "Her rescue tells me that prayers are answered, and that I can have hope in my heart", said Ms. Ansari, adding that she was eager to know more about the circumstances surrounding Ms. Shahzadi's disappearance. "When she spoke to Ansari's mother she literally cried along with her and vowed to help". We also asked her not to put her life at risk but she said she wanted to help Ansari out of humanity.
