Anchorperson Imran Riaz Khan, who had been missing for more than four months, has been safely recovered and is with family, the Sialkot police said on Monday.

The anchorperson’s lawyer Ali Ashfaq also confirmed his recovery in a post on X. “By God’s special blessing, grace, and mercy, I have brought back my prince.

“It took a lot of time due to the mountain of difficulties, the last limit of understanding of the matter, a weak judiciary, and the current ineffective public constitution and legal helplessness,” Ashfaq said.

Riaz was among the individuals apprehended in the wake of violent protests that erupted in the country after the arrest of PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

A first information report (FIR) against unidentified persons and police officials for allegedly kidnapping Imran Riaz was registered with Civil Lines police on the complaint of the anchorperson’s father.

The FIR was registered against “unidentified persons” and police officials for allegedly kidnapping the anchorperson, invoking Section 365 (kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine person) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

The anchorperson was last known to be taken to Cantt police station after his arrest and later to the Sialkot prison.

On September 21, Chief Justice of Lahore High Court Muhammad Ameer Bhatti granted last opportunity to the IGP to recover Riaz when he told the court that provincial intelligence chief was out of the city.

The police chief said a joint working group would meet again on Friday and sought another week’s time.

Our establishment, our judiciary, our main stream media, our disgraceful politicians.....all need to hang their heads in shame. Collectively they have brought our country down to a level that scrapes the bottom of the barrel of civilized society.

This is very serious issue, a number of people are still missing who are raising their voices against corrupt politicians, mafias, establishment and other hidden hands who are drowning the country to save their sk8n instead of country.

Seems we are also faced with a parallel hidden foe along with the constitution that has the power to kidnap citizens without the rule of law having any say in it. Is this the same country that came into being to protect the rights of people? Has every pillar of the state been bought so that it doesn't raise any voice against injustice?

@Parvez, You said "our country" in your comments. Let me make it absolutely clear, it is not a country at all, hidden territories run by many mafias under the disguise of different names. Time to be real and honest to ourselves. Speak out, make yourself heard or just put-up with all the crap and hide in a corner. It is time to decide how and who will run the country. The constitution is dead for a long time, just a piece of garbage and democracy is another name to loot resources and suppress public..

Will the judge have the moral courage to call him to the court and see his physical and mental determine if and how vigorously he was tortured. And if he was will the judge punish the offender ?

@Zaka, chances of finding out are less than 50% due to the state of the judicial systerm.

@Parvez, Unbelievable, how you fail to understand there is no system in Pakistan, havn't you heard the saying "jis kee laathee uskee bhainss". Wake up bro, there is no rule of law in Pakistan and you expect someone to find out whether the journalist was tortured. No wonder the lala land is in deep shit as it's own residents do not understand the reality they live in.
