PESHAWAR: Pushto stage and drama artist Alamzeb Mujahid was abducted from Peshawar’s Hayatabad area on Monday, Artists Welfare Association President Tariq Jamal told Daily Times. Jamal said Alamzeb was abducted from outside his house at around 12:30pm on Monday. He said the association was trying to locate Alamzeb, adding they had not sought police assistance so far. A source told Daily Times that Alamzeb’s family had instead approached the Bara-based militant group Lashkar-e-Islam, seeking their help for the artist’s recovery.
