SHC seeks details from KP govt about two missing men

KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Wednesday directed the federal law officer to summon from Khyber Pakhtunkhawa government details about whereabouts of two missing men who were said to be detained at internment centers.

A division bench, headed by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, was hearing a petition filed by Hasti Gul, a resident of North Karachi, seeking whereabouts of his missing son and brother.

The Petitioner submitted that Rangers personnel had raided his house late in the night and took away his son, Bilal, on Nov 1, 2012. Later, he said, his brother, Pukhtoon Khan, was also arrested by the paramilitary troops.

The petitioner stated that the law enforcement agencies had not made any efforts for recovery of his missing son and brother. He pleaded the court to order the law enforcers to recover and produce them in court.

SDPO Khuwaja Ajmair Nagri filed a report, stating that the police were making every effort to trace the missing men, adding, they had also written to Khyber Pakhtunkhawa government to disclose whether the petitioner’s family members were detained at any internment centers but could elicit no response.

The police officer told the judges that the petitioner had disclosed before the joint investigation team (JIT) that his brother was affiliated to banned outfit, Jaish-e-Mohammad, while his son had no any links with any such organization.

The bench directed the police officer to continue efforts for recovery of the missing men. It asked the deputy attorney general to seek from Khyber Pakhtunkhawa government details about the missing persons.

The hearing was adjourned till March 17.
