Burney demands whereabouts of 14,000 arrested

KARACHI: The Chairman of Ansar Burney Trust International and former federal minister for human rights, Ansar Burney has very strongly condemned and urged upon the Federal and Sindh governments to disclose whereabouts of nearly fourteen thousand missing persons arrested in the last seven months during Karachi operation. He said as per Karachi Police reports, even submitted in the National Assembly, almost 14,000 people were arrested, but no record was available of them and now arrested persons were missing after their arrest while more than 200 were killed in suspicious and reportedly extra judicial killings during the last seven months in the name of Karachi operation. Ansar Burney said that during the last 7 months of Karachi operation, nearly 14,000 persons were arrested on several charges. On the other hand, the two jails in Karachi have received only nearly 700 suspects, now question is where are the rest of thousands missing after their arrest in Karachi? He said Ansar Burney Trust International had no sympathy what-so-ever with the hardened criminals and terrorists and was in favour of operation against criminals but it was the sole responsibility of the Federal and provincial governments to either produce them in courts or release the arrested innocent persons or at-least reveal their whereabouts immediately.
