SHC issues notice to SP AVC, CIA


KARACHI: Expressing extreme annoyance over inaction of Karachi police to recover a person kidnapped by criminals, the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday issued notice to SP Anti-Violent Crime Cell and Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) to appear before it and inform the court about their efforts for recovery of a man.

A division bench headed by Justice Muhammad Ali M Sheikh rejected the progress report in kidnapping case while terming it “vague” and said no substantial steps had been taken to locate the man, who had been missing since 2011.

The bench was seized with the hearing of a petition filed by Aslam Khan Ghori seeking whereabouts of his son Irfan Khan Ghori taken captive by criminals during ethnic riots in Karachi in 2011.

The petitioner Ghori, submitted that his son Irfan Khan Ghori was kidnapped from Pak Colony on August 17, 2011, and despite the payment of ransom amount his son was not released by the captors.

Inspector Ajmal Kalyar submitted before the court a report, stating that one accused Toor Khan alias Shahzad, who was suspected to be involved in kidnapping of petitioner’s son was arrested and major breakthrough in case was expected. However, accused had declined allegations and told police during the interrogation that his five friends were involved in kidnapping case, he added.

Hearing of case was adjourned till April 09.
