KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday directed Malir police officials to conduct fair and transparent investigation into kidnapping of a 17-year-old girl from Malir and bring those involved in her abduction to justice.
A division bench headed by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah gave this direction while hearing a petition filed by Khalid, a resident of Malir, who moved the court seeking whereabouts of his missing 17-year-old daughter Madiha.
