JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Tribal elders in eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday set the government a five-day deadline to recover missing TV journalist or they would shut down gates of government offices by erecting protest tents in their front.

The Enikas TV director, Zalmay Latifi, was kidnapped by unknown gunmen who shot dead his driver in the limits of the fourth police district of Jalalabad, the provincial capital, two days ago.

Though government officials say the missing person would be rescued from his captors soon, police have been unable to find a clue about his whereabouts.

The elders, who held a gathering here, said the kidnapping of Latifi was an attack on the freedom of expression and asked the provincial government to find the missing journalist as soon as possible.

They set the provincial administration a five-day deadline to recover Zalmay or they would erect protest tents in front of key government offices.

Tribal elder Malak Noor Agha Malakzai asked the provincial government to inform them about it had done so far to rescue the missing journalist. “Keeping mum over such incidents is a sin.”

Religious scholar Mualvi Habibullah Jalalabadi asked the provincial government to find the missing TV director within the given deadline as their next plan was protesting in front of the Presidential Palace in Kabulinfo-icon.
