Zeenat Shahzadi was abducted on August 19, 2015 by unknown armed men when she was traveling by an auto-rickshaw in Lahore.

The Journalist's family had assumed her to be dead but at last she had been rescued by security forces. She was due to appear before the Commission for Missing Persons the next day. God knows what she went through.

Zeenat Shahzadi, 26 years old, worked as a reporter in Daily Nai Khaber and Metro News TV. Zeenat had travelled to Kohat and discovered that Ansari had been in police custody. "She first obtained all the details about Hamid's case and confirmed that his intentions were not mala fide, though he did try to enter Pakistan illegally".

"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". Law enforcement agencies exercise unrestricted powers under the Pakistan Protection Act of 2014. I did not even have any contact number for her family, as I never thought I would need one.

"The Commission on Enforced Disappearances works under the jurisdictions of the federal government and has no authority over the country's security agencies". "My sister has not committed any crime in helping an Indian national", Shahzadi's brother, Salman Latif said.
