KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) has summoned SHO Sukhan police station and a sub-inspector for not registering case against Rangers officials, who allegedly illegally detained a dairy farmer. The petitioner, dairy farmer Muhammad Shakir approached the court seeking registration of case for his unlawful detention and torture against Colonel Aftab, DSR Bashir and SI Amjad of Rangers Wing-71.

The petitioner submitted that he had sold livestock worth Rs5.5 million to a private respondent-Shahid Aleem some time back, who did not paid single rupee at that time. He alleged that after some time when he demanded the money, Shahid started persecuting him and got him detained by Rangers Colonel Aftab.

The petitioner submitted that during the unlawful confinement he was subjected to inhuman treatment.

He pleaded the court to direct the federal interior ministry and Rangers DG take notice of his unlawful detention by rangers and take disciplinary action against officials.

Earlier, disposing of the plea, the two-judges had directed the SHO concerned police station to get registered the petitioner’s statement and register a case, if any cognisable offence is made by the Rangers officials.

The petitioner’s counsel filed an application, stating that his statement was not being recorded and police officials had refused to register case. The bench issued notice to SHO Sukhan police station and a sub-inspector Rao Rafiq, asking them to appear in person. The hearing of case was adjourned to September 11, 2013.
