SHC issues notices in missing persons’ case
KARACHI: Notices were issued to intelligence agencies, law enforcement agencies and other respondents for Dec 22 in two petitions, challenging alleged illegal detention of two citizens. Azam Sher, brother of alleged detenue Hazrat Ali, maintains that his brother has been missing since he was picked up from their shop on May 28, 2009 at about 4 pm. The petitioner maintained that his brother was not produced before any court of law and was not booked in any case, thus his detention was illegal. The bench, comprising Chief Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, after hearing the counsel for petitioner, issued notices to the respondents, including top intelligence agencies, CCPO Karachi and Sindh Home Secretary for Dec 22. The same bench, in another petition filed by Syed Siraj Hussain Shah, issued notices for Dec 22. The counsel for petitioner maintained that a joint party of law enforcement agencies raided his residence and whisked away his two sons, Abid Hussain Shah and Ishtiaq Hussain Shah, on Oct 30, 2009. The team also looted jewellery, cash and other articles, including a licensed repeater rifle. Ishtiaq Hussain Shah was released the next day and he informed the family that he and his brother were taken away by CID police. The counsel maintains that Abid Hussain Shah is still in illegal custody. He prayed to the court for ordering his production before the court, and to release him if not required in any case. staff report
