KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday directed home secretary to constitute a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the alleged illegal detention of a man by law enforcers.
The bench headed by Justice Ahmed Ali M Shaikh gave this direction while hearing a petition filed by Mehwish Kanwal seeking recovery of her spouse, Syed Kareemuddin, who has been missing since November 27, 2013. The petitioner alleged that the paramilitary forces had arrested her husband from Korangi area and did not produce him in any court of law if he was involved in any criminal case.
The court was requested to order law enforcement officers to produce her spouse before the court.
Meanwhile, the same bench while expressing extreme displeasure over non-compliance of its earlier order regarding JIT constitution on the man’s alleged illegal detention by Rangers personnel, issued notice to home secretary to file a progress report before the court by September 9.
Two-judge bench was hearing a petition filed by Faiz Muhammad, who sought recovery of his 40-year father Minhajuddin. The petitioner said that his father was arrested from his home in Sherpao Colony, Landhi Town by the Rangers troops on April 19, 2013 and he was missing since then.
The petitioner said that he approached the higher officers of Rangers and police department to get his father released but to no avail.
