Abducted journalist Zeenat Shahzadi recovered, claims BBC Urdu

The rescue on Friday of a Pakistani journalist, Zeenat Shahzadi, who disappeared two years ago while working for the release of an Indian youth, Hamid Ansari, was greeted with relief and hope by his mother, Fauzia Ansari, here.

On October 18, Pakistan forces rescued her from near the Afghanistan border and reunited her with her family. Incidentally, Ansari was sentenced to three-years imprisonment for espionage, months after Shahzadi's disappearance. Shahzadi worked with Fauzia from May 27, 2013 to trace Hamid.

Many believe the role of Zeenat in making Pakistani authorities acknowledge that Hamid was present in a Pakistani jail was one of the key reasons for her disappearance in 2015.

"Indeed it is thrilling news, I have been unable to hold back my tears ever since I heard of her release".

Shahzadi was "forcibly disappeared" while she was working on the Indian citizen's case, according to PTI.

"Zeenat had been an angel to me ever since she contacted me". She knew that I would fast and pray for her every time she stepped out of her house to attend a hearing. She did so much for me and I could do nothing when she was in trouble.

The Journalist's family had assumed her to be dead but at last she had been rescued by security forces. "I was extremely saddened when I learned about her brother's suicide", she said.

According to Shahzadi's elder brother Salman, their younger brother Saddam Hussain had killed himself out of grief for his sister.

"I want to hug her and shower all my love on her". I later realised that someone was insistently trying to get in touch with me over the phone. "For two years, she did all the work".

"In January 2016, thanks to the efforts of Shahzadi, the Deputy Attorney General of Pakistan finally admitted that the Ministry of Defense had detained Ansari pending his trial in a military court". He is accused of entering Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa region illegally from Afghanistan to meet and marry a Pashtun girl. "It was only after she was sure of these aspects that she took up the case and got a special power of attorney", she said.
