Journalist Marvi Sirmed's home ransacked; electronic devices, travel documents stolen

Journalist and activist Marvi Sirmed's laptops and other valuables have been burgled from her home in Islamabad, her husband reported on Thursday.
Manzoor Sirmed reported on Twitter that the family had found their home ransacked upon returning from Lahore after Eid. He said that laptops and other valuables present in the house were taken away.Daily Times — which Marvi is a correspondent of — reported that two laptops, one smartphone, passports of family members and other travel documents were taken.
Surprisingly, her jewellery, apart from a gold ring and two bangles, was largely left untouched.
Marvi also told the South Punjab News that "the miscreants had detached the new passports and took the valid ones while leaving the expired ones behind".
The publication's editor, Raza Rumi, posted pictures of the ransacked house on Twitter, highlighting the peculiarity of the 'robbery'.
"Everything [was] scanned but only laptops, one smartphone and travel documents [were] taken by the 'thieves'."The incident adds to growing concerns regarding what seems to be the targeting of individuals and institutions by unknown actors using various forms of intimidation to silence voices critical of the state.
Waqas Goraya, a prominent Pakistani blogger based abroad, alleged yesterday that his family had received phone calls and unsolicited visits from personnel said to be representing security agencies. He alleged that his family had been harassed and threatened with abductions if he did not "shut up" on social media.
Another journalist/activist, Gul Bukhari, was briefly abducted at the start of this month while on her way to work. She was later released after hours in illegal detention.
