Exiled Pak Journalist found Dead in Sweden

Pak Journalist found Dead, Swedish Police have found the body of Sajid Hussain in the Fyris River. Hussain who went missing in March, was the Editor-in-Chief of the Balochistan Times, an online magazine he had set up in Sweden, in which he reported on various crimes and forced disappearances, as well as insurgent and terrorist activities. He was forced to flee Pakistan and go into self-imposed exile when he exposed a drug kingpin in Balochistan, Pakistan, in 2012. He arrived in Sweden in 2017, and secured political asylum in 2019.


Pak Journalist found Dead, The Pakistan Intelligence Service, the ISI, was initially suspected to be behind his disappearance and consequent demise. However, the autopsy has reduced the chances of foul play leading to his death. Various press unions and organizations, such as Karachi Press Club and Reporters Without Borders, have urged the Swedish Government to investigate this matter thoroughly, and the police have assured them of a comprehensive enquiry into the case.
