Wife approaches SHC against detention of Moazzam Ali Khan


KARACHI: The family of an alleged prime suspect in murder of Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s leader, Dr. Imran Farooq approached the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday against his detention by the law enforcement agencies.

The petitioner, Ms. Sadia Bano, the wife of Moazzam Ali Khan filed a constitutional petition against detention of her spouse.

The woman petitioner submitted that the personnel of paramilitary force raided her house located in Block-8 of Federal B Area, near Azizabad on early hours of April 12 and took away her husband and his belongings, including laptop.

She stated that the family members approached the Azizabad police station to seek information on the whereabouts of Khan, but the police officer refused to give any clue of the detainee. Later, they also approached the Rangers officers, who did not give any information too.

She argued that the detention of the petitioner’s husband and the law enforcers’ failure to divulge any information on his whereabouts is a violation of the article 18 of the Constitution.

The petitioner pleaded to the court to issue directives for the Sindh home secretary, the director-general of the Sindh Rangers, the IG Police, the SHO Azizabad and other officials to produce the detainee in the court of law along with the details of the criminal case, if any made against him.
