Girl moves court against ‘injustice’


January 10, 2012

A MASTER’S degree holder girl Hina Ehttisham has approached the Lahore High Court against non-provision of a cab under the Punjab Chief Minister Yellow Cab Scheme.
The petitioner through her counsel stated that she applied for the provision of cab after fulfilling all requirements set by the government. But, she said, her application was rejected on the plea that she was a daughter of a PPP activist. She said she had been subjected to discrimination.
She prayed to the court to take notice of the gross discrimination on the part of the government authorities and direct them to provide her Yellow Cab, being an eligible applicant.
Justice Muhammad Khalid Mehmood Khan will take up this petition on Tuesday (today). CCPO asked to recover eyewitness: The Lahore High Court on Monday directed the Lahore Capital City Police Officer to recover and produce before court an eyewitness of the murder of a boy who was kidnapped for ransom.
Tariq Mehmood of Misri Shah filed a petition and submitted that his 13-year-old son, Hamza, was kidnapped for ransom on May 7, 2011. The petitioner said he had paid Rs400,000 as ransom kidnapers but they had killed his son. Police arrested the kidnappers but joined hands with them, he said and alleged that police had helped the accused party in abduction of Asif, the sole eyewitness of the case.
The petitioner also alleged that police were pressurizing him to negotiate with the accused. He prayed to the court to order the police to recover Asif and produce him in the court. After hearing the contention, the court ordered the CCPO to rescue the abducted man and produce him on Tuesday (today).
Girl recovered, sent with mother: The Lahore High Court on Monday sent a teenaged girl with her mother after her recovery from kidnappers in Karachi. Justice Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi issued this order on a petition of Sajjad Masih, seeking recovery of his daughter Mehwish. CIA SP Umar Virk, appearing before the court, on Monday

submitted that Mehwish was kidnapped from Lahore and was taken to Karachi. He said in Malir she was sold. He said they had recovered the girl and arrested three accused.
Sajjad, a resident of the Walton Road area, submitted in his petition that two years back his daughter was kidnapped and the local police was not serious in recovering her. He said the police were using delaying tactics and had failed in recovering her in two years. He prayed to the court to direct the police to recover his daughter.
During last hearing, the DSP concerned appeared before the court and submitted that they were trying to recover the girl but to no avail. The judge warned him to be ready to face the music in case the girl was not recovered by the next date of hearing. The judge also directed the CIA SP to recover the girl and present her before the court. The girl appearing before the court said that she wanted to go with her mother and the judge allowed her.
