SHC directs police to recover missing persons after 3 of them were traced back to KPK detention centers

The family of missing Muttahida Qaumi Movement worker Furqan Khan sought the armed forces' assistance for the recovery.

According to media reports, a two-member bench of the Sindh High Court, led by Justice KK Agha, directed the police on Tuesday to seek assistance from investigation agencies and other institutions to recover missing persons.

The court gave the direction after hearing a set of pleas pertaining to the recovery of missing persons. According to details, the police have been asked to ensure results in the matter by the next hearing which is slated for the 21st of September.

Cases of Missing Persons that urged the Court to take action

The family of missing Muttahida Qaumi Movement worker Furqan Khan sought the armed forces’ assistance for the recovery of their beloved. According to sources, Khan was detained by the Sindh Rangers seven years ago. Denying the allegation, the Rangers counsel stated:

After investigating detained persons for two to four days, the paramilitary force hands the suspects to the police. We have no interest in feeding anyone for seven years.

The federal government submitted a report stating that missing persons Farhat Ali, Abdul Rauf, and Rehmat Ali have been traced. The report reads:

The missing persons are being kept at a detention center in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

After looking at the report, the bench inquired where the reports from other detention centers were. At this, the government lawyer apprised the court that letters had been issued to all centers and institutions, and replies were still being awaited.

The hopes of the sufferers are rising

Experts believe that the Sindh High Court is now personally devoted to solving the unsolved missing person cases. Following the issuance of the latest directives by the court, the families of the sufferers are hoping that the news of their loved ones will arrive at their doorstep soon.
