Missing Pro-Peace Pakistan activist returns

Raza Mehmood Khan, a 40-year old Pakistani peace activist and the convener of Aaghaz-e-Dosti (an organisation promoting friendly ties between Pakistan and India), who was mysteriously abducted by unknown persons from his house on on December 2, 2017, has been recovered.

Rashid Wani, personal secretary to the president of the Commission of Enquiry on Enforced Disappearances, reportedly said that Khan was recovered by Model Town police and had returned home safely.

While speaking to a Pak journalist Wani said, “Raza Khan was recovered by Model Town police 10 days ago.”

Wani further said the abducted peace activist had returned home safely. The commission claimed SP Investigation Model Town Lahore reported the matter to them after Khan’s recovery. The Pak journalist contacted SP Model Town Imran Sethi to know who had abducted Raza, what was the motive behind it. However, the police official turned him away.

Khan went missing in 2017 after participating in an open discussion event on extremism.

Khan’s close friends also confirmed that he had reached home. They said Raza was in good health.
