KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Monday directed the interior secretary, home secretary, provincial police chief and Rangers director general among other official respondents to produce in court the missing advocate and his four relatives said to be detained by the law enforcers.
A division bench, headed by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, issued notices to the official respondents, the federal and provincial law officers and prosecutor general Sindh to file comments on the petition till February 13.
The petitioner, Haji Sirhinjan Khan, moved the court seeking whereabouts of his two sons and three grandchildren.
The counsel for the petitioner submitted the personnel of law enforcement agencies raided the petitioner’s house in Orangi Town on February 03 and drove away his two sons – Advocate Mohammad Usman and Mohammad Abbas, and grandchildren – Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Adnan and Mohammad Ehsan. They were still missing, he added.
He told the judges that he approached the higher officials of the law enforcement agencies to seek information about their location but to no avail. He said he was clueless about their whereabouts as the police personnel did not disclose their whereabouts when approached, adding they had kept them in illegal detention.
The petitioner argued that their unlawful detention was a violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed in the Constitution. He pleaded the court to order the law enforcers to produce them in court.
