KARACHI - Abdullah Zafar, a reporter with The Nation in Karachi was picked up by ‘people in plainclothes’ from his home Sunday, the Freedom Network reported.
The network, Pakistan's first watchdog organization to monitor press freedom violations, demanded his safe return.
In June a group of men wearing both plainclothes and uniforms of the Frontier Corps stormed the house of his journalist Zafar Achakzai in Quetta and took him away.
He was detained for several days for sharing content on social media against the security forces. He was released on bail by a judge this week.
