SHC bench headed by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah was seized with the hearing of petition filed by Shabana Parveen who moved the court against law enforcers for detaining her husband, Imran Ahmed Khan.

The petitioner stated that her husband, Khan was at their home in wee hours of 20th August when the Rangers personnel forcefully entered the house and took him away.

She stated that “I approached Zaman Town police station to inquire about my spouse and filed abduct application but they refused to take such application and did not take any legal action”.

The petitioner stated that she is not being informed about her detained husband since 20th August.

Citing DG Rangers Sindh, IGP Sindh, and SHO of the area as respondents, she prayed the court to direct the respondents to produce her husband before the court.

After the initial hearing, the court issued notices to Additional Attorney General (AAG) and respondents to file their comments on 1st October.
