Missing Pakistani journalist on trail of 'Indian spy' found after 2 years

26-year-old journalist Zeenat Shahzadi was abducted on August 19, 2015 from Lahore while she was on the way to work.

The Dawn quoted Justice (Retired) Javed Iqbal, the head of the missing persons' commission, as saying that he was thrilled to confirm Shahzadi's return.

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

Kaneez Bibi said Saturday that her daughter Zeenat Shahzadi arrived when she was not there and she does not know who dropped her off at the home in the eastern city of Lahore.

The royal family then boarded a train to meet young passengers who had been nominated by Their Royal Highnesses' Charities Forum . A royal aid said that while her health has improved, she continues to make decisions "day-to-day".

Zeenat Shahzadi was due to appear before the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances on August 24, 2015 to give a testimony about Hamid Ansari's disappearance but was abducted five days earlier.

In 2015, Zeenat had filed an application with the Pakistan Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Hamid's mother Fauzia Ansari. Her family has yet to confirm her release. However, her disappearance hit the headlines when her brother, Saddam, 17, committed suicide in March 2016.

She adds that in spite of staying in Lahore, Zeenat would travel for every hearing. In her attempts to track down and Indian national, Hamid Ansari who had been embroiled in espionage allegations, Shahzadi had managed to get in touch with Ansari's mother, Fauzia Ansari.

"At the time of her disappearance, Shahzadi was working to find Nehal Hamid Ansari, an Indian citizen who disappeared in Pakistan in 2012. The next thing I heard was that she had disappeared", Ms. Ansari recalled, speaking to The Hindu. She later came to know that Ansari had crossed over in search of a woman he loved and to prevent her marriage with someone else in Pakistan's Kohat region.

Zeenat's family and the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan believe Pakistan's Special Forces are responsible, because she fearlessly pursued an explosive story the spy agencies didn't want told. A week before her disappearance, she was detained by plainclothed men and grilled for four hours after she spoke to the Indian High Commissioner at a public event.
