KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday issued notices to Director General Rangers Sindh, Inspector General Sindh, CPLC chief and other officials to submit their comment on the petition seeking whereabouts of a man who went missing outside City Courts Karachi.

SHC bench headed by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah took up petition filed by the mother of detainee who moved the court against law enforcers for detaining her son Mohammad Arshad Iqbal.

The petitioner stated that her son went to the city courts on 9th September 2015 to obtain the release order for his car to get it back. “But some Rangers’ personnel wearing civil dress detained my son and took him away just after he came out from the gate No 3 of City Courts Karachi”, she submitted.

The petitioner stated that there is one FIR registered against her son at Orangi Town police station under section 23IA of Sindh Arms Act, 2013 but in that particular case Iqbal has already on bail and he cannot be arrested.

The mother of the detainee stated that she was going through mental agonies due to missing of her son and whole family is suffering due to it.

She apprehended that his son might also be killed in a fake encounter.

Citing DG Rangers Sindh, IGP Sindh, CPLC chief and SHO City Court police station as respondents, she prayed the court to direct the respondents to produce her son before the court. She also requested the court to lodge FIR against those who involved in illegal detention of citizens.

After the initial hearing, the court issued notices to Attorney General and respondents to file their comments on 17th September.
