Fauzia later came to know that Ansari was in love with a woman in Pakistan's Kohat region and had crossed over to prevent her marriage with another man. Fauzia said UK-based activist Jas Uppal had introduced her to Zeenat as she was desperately trying to trace her son.
Security forces on Saturday recovered "missing" journalist Zeenat Shahzadi from the Old City, who had been missing since two years. The Pakistani newspaper Dawn has quoted Missing Persons Commission chief Justice Javed Iqbal saying that Zeenat was kidnapped by non-state actors and enemy agencies.
Storm Brian set to batter United Kingdom with heavy rain and 70mph winds
Only days after surviving Hurricane Ophelia, Tipperary is gearing up for a second round of high winds and rain with Storm Brian . The first and most significant land-based impacts will be in the southwest of Ireland, hence the amber warning from Met Éireann.
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.
Well-known Pakistani journalist and rights activist Beena Sarwar tweeted about Shahzadi being found: "Thrilled that the disappeared activist-journalist Zeenat Shehzadi is home safe". Later that year, in August, she disappeared en route to work.
United Kingdom retail sales growth at slowest level in four years
Year-on-year retail growth for Q3 overall was 1.3 percent, which is the weakest rate of annual growth since Q2 in 2013. Average wages are rising by 2.1 per cent, according to the figures for July.
Later, Pakistani authorities admitted that Ansari was in jail on espionage charges. "The next thing I heard was that she had disappeared", Ms. Ansari recalled, speaking to The Hindu.
Ansari, meanwhile, had gone missing in Pakistan in November, 2012. She had filed an application with the Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Fauzia Ansari, Hamid Ansari's mother. 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.
UK Retail Sales Fell in September

Hamid Ansari had reportedly entered Pakistan from Afghanistan to meet a girl he had met online. "In addition to the missing persons' crisis, Pakistan ranks sixth in the Committee to Protect Journalists' list of the 20 deadliest countries for journalists in the world, and as the ninth worst country in the world for impunity for crimes against journalists", it said. "My sister is missing and my younger brother (Saddam) who was deeply attached to her hanged himself after losing hope to get reunited with her", Shahzadi's brother Salman Latif had told PTI.
