A Pakistani journalist associated with Daily Jang newspaper was reportedly abducted from his residence by unidentified masked men here on Saturday, his family said.
Around two dozen people wearing masks scaled the walls of reporter Matloob Husain Mosavi's home in Karachi's Salman Farsi Society early morning and took him away, claimed his brother Minhaj Mosavi.
The brother said the men misbehaved with the family members and locked them in a room before taking away Matloob, Dawn online reported.
Minhaj Mosavi cited his neighbour's accounts that the men had arrived in plain clothes bearing arms in three police vehicles, Toyota Prado and Toyota Vigo.
He said that his brother had no affiliations with political or religious organisations and termed Matloob as a social activist with liberal and progressive opinions.
The family has filed an application at the Al Falah police station.
