IHC seeks report on missing girl

January 31, 2023

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday sought a report from the capital police on a petition seeking the recovery of an 18-year-old girl who went missing from Sangjani police limits.

Chief Justice Aamer Farooq heard the case filed by the mother of the girl. The petitioner's lawyer said the girl, a resident of Muzaffargarh, had been working at a house in Section F-7/4, but she disappeared on August 28, 2022.

The lawyer said there was a possibility that she had been abducted or murdered. “Instead of recovering the girl, the police have registered an FIR of theft against her family,” he said and prayed the court to dismiss the case and issue orders for her recovery. The court sought a report from the police in 10 days and adjourned the case.
