Karachi: ‘Missing’ KWSB man case
Karachi: The same bench directed the home secretary to supervise the investigation being conducted to ascertain the whereabouts of an employee of the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board. Petitioner Bina Khalid approached the SHC against the detention of her husband, Shamim Khalid, who had been missing since Jan 6.
The Rangers had already denied to have arrested the petitioner’s husband in their comments filed in court. The petitioner stated that she along with her husband and their five-year-old son was going in their car when her husband pulled over near an ATM at Malir Halt to withdraw money.
She said that all of a sudden the LEA personnel in two vehicles, both bearing official registration numbers, intercepted and took him away.
She said she cried for help but none came to her husband’s rescue, while the police and Rangers were patrolling the area.
She impleaded the interior secretary, the home secretary, the Rangers director general, the city police chief and others as respondents.
The court had earlier directed the interior secretary, the home secretary and the city police chief to file their replies with respective supporting affidavits. It had also ordered the chiefs of the Inter-Services Intelligence, the Military Intelligence and the Intelligence Bureau to file their report along with supporting affidavits. The respondent agencies also denied to have arrested or detained the alleged missing man.
