ISLAMABAD: Joint Director SECP Sajid Gondal has been arrested by unknown men on suspicions of passing inside information to reporters in Islamabad.
Sajid Gondal, who was a former reporter of Dawn, was kidnapped earlier by unknown men along with his son in front of the National Agricultural Research Council.
It is surfacing on social media that the motive behind his kidnapping was the information he leaked from the concerned department to reports of media channels. Soon after his abduction, the social media users showed outrage over it and demanded an urgent release of Sajid Gondal and his son.
A humble honest person. Sajid Gondal should be recovered asap! https://t.co/dPIF4bDf9I
