Journalist Matiullah Jan goes missing from Islamabad: family

Islamabad (HRNW)  Matiullah Jan, a prominent Pakistani journalist, has gone missing from Islamabad’s G-6 sector, his family confirmed Tuesday.

He was picked up from outside the school his wife works at around 11:10am. Jan had gone to pick her up, said one of his friends.

Shahid Abbasi, Matiullah Jan’s brother, told a reporter that people wearing black uniforms in a white double cabin police vehicle and a white car came to pick him up.

A CCTV camera installed at the school has captured the incident and it shows people wearing black uniform taking the journalist away.

“He dropped me at school at 10am and when I called him about around 1pm to pick me, one of his cellphones was switched off and he wasn’t picking the other one,” his wife, who is a teacher at a government girls’ school in Islamabad, said.

“I was told by the school’s watchman that one of your vehicles is parked outside the school,” she said, adding he usually doesn’t wait without informing her.

“When I went out to see, the door of the driver’s seat was open and one of his cellphones was in the car,” she said.

The police arrived at the school and are investigating the case.
