Amn Tehrik spokesperson Idrees Kamal sent us this email to be published as life of a senior journalist from FATA is in danger, we request concerned authorities to take immediate action to get him released.(Editor)
One of our senior journalist friends Rehamtullah Darpa Khel has been abducted by some unknown armed men this evening from Miranshah Bazaar. Nor Behram who was with Rehmatulah on the spot told that two non custom paid state cars with color glasses came all of a sudden and took the journalist with them on gun point. Some of the kidnappers also fired in the air as to avoid any kind of resistance if there may be any.

The spokesman to the local Taliban of North Waziristan has immediately condemned the abduction of Rehmatullah and said they will inquire into the case and he will be recovered safely.
The tribal union of journalists have also shown their deep concern over the abduction of Rehmatullah and demanded of the govt to take stern action against those involved in this obnoxious act.
The abduction of Rehmatullah reminds us the threat to the journalists in the volatile region while we have already lost one of our colleagues Hayatullah Khan Shaheed in 2006 who was abducted in the same way.
The Journalists all over the world are requested to please take action or the life of Rehmatullah is seriously in danger.
