Ripples of joy over Pak. scribe's rescue

Shahzadi had disappeared en route to work

Senior Pakistani journalist Beena Sarwar, who had been lobbying for Zeenat's release, had told The Indian Express a year ago, "She seems to see herself as a human rights crusader and social activist, inspired by rights activists like Asma Jahangir". She was recovered on Wednesday night from near the Pak-Afghan border, Iqbal said.

Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal also said that the tribal elders also played an important role in the recovery of Zeenat Shahzadi.

Human rights activist Beena Sarwar stated to media that Journalist Shahzadi today has been reunited with her family in Lahore and we are happy for her safe recovery.

It was a result of this action on the part of Zeenat that the security forces were bound to agree that Hamid was in their custody. Fauzia said, "As soon as she got the statement from the police she called me up and said that she planned to file a petition before the Human Rights Cell of the Pakistani Supreme Court about Hamid's disappearance". We also asked her not to put her life at risk but she said she wanted to help Ansari out of humanity.

She adds that in spite of staying in Lahore, Zeenat would travel for every hearing. 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.

It must be noted that Zeenat, 25, had raised her voice against the cases of missing persons in Pakistan.
