KARACHI - Two Pakistani nationals who had unlawfully been arrested and imprisoned by Afghan security forces last month in Kabul, have been released, Ansar Burney Trust International said here Monday. Syed Furqan Shah and Mohammad Inam Ullah, two Pakistani citizens who worked at Safi Landmark Hotel in Kabul as General Manager and Manager, were taken into custody at 11am on the 2nd of July 2008 by Afghan security forces. No reason was given for their arrest except for the fact that they were Pakistani citizens and looked suspicious. The two Pakistanis were on duty at the time the security personnel came to the hotel and picked them without even a warrant. They were then taken to an unknown location. The case of Syed Furqan Shah and Mohammad Inam Ullah was then taken up by Fahad Burney, Vice Chairman of the Trust, who immediately contacted the Afghan Embassy in Islamabad, the office of Afghan President Hamid Karzai and various other members of the Afghan Government to demand the immediate release of these two Pakistani nationals who had committed no crime. After continues efforts of the Ansar Burney Trust, Syed Furqan Shah and Mohammad Inam Ullah were finally released from detention and are expected to return to their homes in Pakistan any time this week.
