Missing Pak journalist found after 2 years near the Pak-Af border

Shahzadi was found on Wednesday night from the area near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, reported Dawn.

Prior to her abduction two years ago, Zeenat Shahzadi worked for a local newspaper in Lahore, and was working on a Case pertaining to the disappearance of an Indian Citizen Hamid Ansari who had gone missing in Pakistan from November 2012.

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

Shahzadi's family has yet to issue a statement.

The distraught parents of Hamid Ansari who are fighting for their son's freedom.

Tribal elders of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan played a key role in her recovery, Iqbal said.

Body Cameras Didn't Change DC Officers' Behavior
Chief Newsham added that the behavior may not have changed because his officers " were doing the right thing in the first place ". The African-American motorist was shot to death on September 11, 2016 when he was pulled over for driving erratically.

Hamid Ansari, a 27-year-old engineer and management graduate from Mumbai, went missing in Pakistan in 2013. Later that year, in August, she disappeared en route to work. He was arrested for illegally entering Pakistan from Afghanistan to meet a girl he had befriended online, according to reports. "I am thrilled that she is home safe", rights activist Beena Sarwar said.

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

With the help of social media, she was able to contact Ansari's mother in India and filed a case with the Supreme Court on her behalf.

The teenage boy was said to be emotionally attached to his missing sister. He was sentenced to three years" imprisonment reportedly by a military court on charges of illegally entering Pakistan and "spying'.

As a result, security agencies had admitted to the commission that Hamid was in their custody.

Soon after this, Zeenat had started receiving threat calls from unknown persons who told her not to pursue Ansari's case. "When she spoke to Ansari's mother she literally cried along with her and vowed to help".
