SHC issues notice on petition of MQM worker’s family

KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the home secretary, Rangers director general, and other officials to file comments on a petition of the family of a Muttahida Quami Movement’s worker, arrested during the raid at party headquarters, Nine Zero, against the authorities for not allowing it to meet their detained relative.

A division bench, headed by Justice Ahmed Ali M Sheikh, was hearing a petition filed by Huma, who moved the court, pleading it to order the respondent authorities to allow the family members of detained MQM’s worker to meet him in prison.

The petitioner’s counsel submitted that Mohammad Amir was arrested by the paramilitary troops during raid at Nine Zero, MQM’s headquarters, on March 11. Since then, he added, the family members of detainee were clueless on the whereabouts of Amir as they were not being allowed to meet him.

He argued that the authorities were not allowing the petitioner and other relatives to meet the detained worker, which was violation of the fundamental rights.
