A writ petition has been filed in the Islamabad High Court by his brother Shahid Akbar Abbasi against the ‘kidnapping’ of journalist Matiullah Jan.

The petition states that Matiullah Jan has been abducted by unknown persons and he should be rescued immediately.

In the petition, Matiullah Jan’s brother Shahid Akbar Abbasi says that he is a lawyer enrolled in Islamabad Bar Council and a resident of Bara Kahu. He has just been told by his brother’s wife that today my elder brother Matiullah Jan reached Government School G-6/3 to pick him up but when his wife came out of the school he found her missing.

His car was locked, the windows were open, the keys were inside the car and his phone was lying under the car seat. The abductee is a senior journalist and has been unemployed for the past several months. He was critical of the policies of the establishment and the government.

I suspect they have been abducted by unknown individuals, and I urge this court to recover them.

In this case, Shahid Akbar Abbasi has named the State of Pakistan, Secretary Home, Secretary Defense, Director General ISI, SSP Operations Islamabad Police and SHO of Aabpara Police Station as parties.
