After scribe is freed, hope for Indian in Pak jail

Journalist Shahzadi recovered from border area

Its been 2 years now, a Pakistani journalist who has allegedly kidnapped while pursuing the case of an Indian engineer who jailed in Peshawar on espionage charges has now been rescued.

According to Justice (r) Javed Iqbal, Shahzadi was recovered from the Pakistan-Afghanistan border by security forces.

According to the Dawn report quoting officials, "some non-state actors and enemy agencies had kidnapped her and she was recovered from them".

"Zeenat Shahzadi today has been reunited with her family in Lahore and we are happy for her safe recovery".

Pakistani journalist Zeenat Shahzadi who mysteriously went missing while tracing an "Indian spy" in Lahore in 2015, has returned home after two years on Friday.

It was a result of this action on the part of Zeenat that the security forces were bound to agree that Hamid was in their custody.

Zeenat had also filed an application with the Supreme Court of Pakistan's human rights cell on behalf of Fauzia Ansari, thereby playing an important role in encouraging Islamabad's Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances to investigate his case. To make her research stronger, she had also got in touch with Fauzia Ansari, the mother of Hamid Ansari, through social media. We also asked her not to put her life at risk but she said she wanted to help Ansari out of humanity.

Shahzadi's disappearance once again came to the fore in 2016 when news broke that her brother had committed suicide.

"I have met foreign minister Sushma Swaraj a number of times and she has assured me that all efforts were being made to secure Hamid's release as he has completed the three year jail term", she said.

Shahzadi was reported to have been abducted by Pakistani agencies. Ansari, a Mumbai resident arrested in 2012 for illegally entering Pakistan to meet a girl he had befriended online.

It must be noted that Zeenat, 25, had raised her voice against the cases of missing persons in Pakistan. "The next thing I heard was that she had disappeared", Ms. Ansari recalled, speaking to The Hindu. "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.
