nonbailable warrants

The Sindh High Court (SHC) issued nonbailable arrest warrants against the Federal Interior Secretary, Yousaf Naeem, for neglecting to appear in the missing persons’ case.

A two-member bench comprising Justice KK Agha and Justice Abdul Mubeen Lakho heard petitions inquiring recovery of missing persons.

The court expressed resentment over the non-appearance of the Interior Secretary and the failure to recover the missing persons.

The court issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Yousaf Naeem for not appearing despite repeated summon. The court also directed the IGP Islamabad Police to arrest him and produced before the court on the 27th of May.

Justice KK Agha noted that he had issued orders many times to trace the missing persons. He said the federal Secretary presented the report of the detention centers, but he has not appeared himself.

Agha said that instead of presenting the Additional Secretary and the Joint Secretary of Home Affairs, the Deputy Secretary was being sent for appearances. The show-cause notice issued by the court was also not responded, the judge said.

Justice KK Agha also said that the federal Secretary was openly violating the order of the Sindh High Court, continuing that it is the duty of all to protect the rights of citizens who have been missing for many years.

The SHC court asked for a report from the interior secretary on the disappearance of the missing person Shamshad Ali. Shamshad has been missing from Karachi since 2015.
