The last time that I managed to get in touch with her was around 12.30 pm earlier today (Saturday), when she was safe in a basement. For safety measures, further details cannot be disclosed. However, since then, we were not able to connect. We are trying to get Nushrratt back safely to India and hope she returns back in the best of health and unharmed.”
Nushrratt had travelled to Israel for the film festival where her film Akelli was screened. Akelli is the story of an ordinary girl’s escape from a war-ravaged Iraq where ISIS plays havoc with women’s honour is a compelling survivor drama.
