WION’s Pakistan based journalist Anas Mallick, who was in Afghanistan to cover the first anniversary of the Taliban's takeover of the country, was abducted and physically assaulted by the Taliban. However, later Pakistan's ambassador to the neighbouring country Mansoor Ahmad Khan on Friday confirmed that he is safe.

Reports of Anas Mallick going missing began circulating Thursday night, a day after he had reached Afghanistan.

His fellow journalist was one of the first persons to share the news of Anas Mallick's disappearance Thursday night, in a tweet.

He was reported missing the next day after filing a story about the safehouse where the al-Qaeda chief was killed in a drone strike. Anas Mallick had recently interviewed Pakistan Foreign Minister on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Council(SCO) meeting in Tashkent.
