In Pakistan, a reporter working for Geo News has gone missing in Karachi, his family, and the media outlet said Saturday morning. According to a report published on Geo.tv, Ali Imran Syed went missing on Friday.
Imran left his home between 7 pm and 8 pm after telling his family he would be back home in half an hour. He has not returned home since the report said. It also quoted his wife as saying that his car was parked outside the house, and he had left his mobile phone at home. The Geo News administration stated that the Karachi police chief and DIG East had been informed about Imran’s disappearance. The publication said that the family had also submitted a report to Sachal police station.
The reporter’s disappearance has also garnered attention on social media. The hashtag ‘BringBackAliImran’ was among the top trends on Twitter on Saturday.
National Union of Journalists Pakistan strongly condemns and demand the immediate release of Ali Imran.
Amnesty International stated that Imran was “feared to have been subjected to an enforced disappearance for his reporting.” “The authorities must establish his whereabouts immediately,” the human rights group said.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan also called for Imran’s “immediate release.“
