Pak journalist, abducted while pursuing the story of a jailed Indian, rescued
Renowned Pakistan journalist Zeenat Shahzadi, who was abducted nearly two years before by some unidentified personals while pursuing the story of an Indian engineer who had been sentenced to three years imprisonment for the act of illegally entering the country and the act of espionage, has been finally rescued from a remote area on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
The news regarding the laudable rescue operation has been publicized by the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances.
While speaking to the media personals, the president of the aforementioned agency, Justice (retired) Javed Iqbal has stated that Ms Shahzadi has been successfully reunited with her family.
The unfortunate fact is that one of the journalist’s brothers committed suicide in March last year as he was unable to withstand the severe loss.
Several human rights activists have raised their voice to force the authorities to constitute an efficient rescue team.
In a sense, the activists who invested a considerable amount of time to bring up the case in front of the elite leaders are the prime elements who deserve genuine appreciation for the success of the rescue operation (it does not mean that those officials who have taken part in the operation do not deserve appreciation).
At this moment, it is not clear who was behind the abduction of the journalist. It is said that the locals living in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region have played a significant role in locating the journalist.
