Shahzadi was reported to have been abducted by Pakistani agencies.

Zeenat, 25, is a freelance reporter who had raised her voice for missing persons in Pakistan.

Soon after this, Zeenat had started receiving threat calls from unknown persons who told her not to pursue Ansari's case. Ansari, a Mumbai resident arrested in 2012 for illegally entering Pakistan to meet a girl he had befriended online. "I feel relieved because somewhere I feel responsible for what she had to go through", says Ansari, who came to know about Zeenat's release through social media. The application was accepted and forwarded to the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances. "Those powers were further strengthened in 2015 by the Pakistan Protection Ordinance (PPO) which offers greater power and the opportunity for impunity to the police, intelligence, law enforcement authorities and military for acts like forced kidnapping, torture and extrajudicial killings".
