Islamabad police on Monday produced a missing citizen, Muneeb Akram, before the Islamabad High Court (IHC), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah, who had asked the police and intelligence agencies to produce the missing citizen on Monday, heard the case.
“This is the second or third incident of a person going missing. Tell me, why is this happening? Tell me, who is responsible for this?” the IHC chief justice questioned the representative of the Ministry of Defence.
The representative of the Ministry of Defence told the court, “We had asked our agencies to find out about the missing person after the order of this court. After the investigation of the two agencies, it was found that neither of them had him.”
At this, IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah said: “Our intelligence agencies are among the best in the world. If any citizen is picked up, the job of the agencies is to find out about him, not to just say that ‘we do not have him’.”
He added: “Now tell me, who is responsible for all this? This court, in its detailed judgment, has identified the responsible. If the boy was not found, the court would hold them all responsible. You are directed to read this judgment once.”
