DIG summoned in missing woman, son case

DIG summoned in missing woman, son case

LAHORE

Justice Abdul Sami Khan of the Lahore High Court on Monday while hearing a petition for recovery of a lawyer’s wife and her son directed the DIG operations to appear on Tuesday (today).

The judge reprimanded DSP Racecourse circle Safdar Kazmi for not completing the investigation of the abduction case within given time. Zareena Bibi, mother of Ayesha, approached the LHC for recovery of her daughter and grandson.

Petitioner's counsel Asma Jahangir submitted that petitioner’s 26-year old daughter had been working in the office of prominent lawyer Maqsood Buttar who late married with Ayesha and out of this wedlock had a kid Aliyan Ali. She said that Ayesha with her son was living in a flat at Model Town. The counsel said, the petitioner claimed that Ayesha often talked about irreconcilable differences with her husband. She also alleged that on the day of her disappearance Ayesha came to petitioner’s residence and later left with clerk of her husband. The counsel submitted that the last time petitioner on November 30, 2016, visited her daughter’s residence but there was no traces of Ayesha and her son.

The petitioner alleged that almost seven months had passed and they both were missing since then and apprehended that they were gone forever. She also alleged that the petitioner son-in-law had even tried to kill by pushing her off a cliff near Murree due to which she suffered multiple fractures. She said the petitioner had also approached the police and the matter was under investigation and the police so far could not recover Ayesha and her son.

She sought directions for recovery of Ayesha and son and action against her son-in-law who might be behind mysterious disappearance of the two.

student attack case: A division bench of the Lahore High Court on Monday reserved the verdict on an intra court appeal of accused Shah Hussain challenging order of day-to-day conducting his trial for stabbing his class fellow.

Earlier, Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi on June 9, had dismissed the constitutional petition of the accused by holding that the day-to-day trial would not deprive the accused of his any legal right. The judge had observed that the day-to-day proceedings would be of great help to prove his innocence within days.

The accused challenged the May 23 administrative order of Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court Syed Mansoor Ali Shah of directing a judicial magistrate to conclude trial in stabbing case of a law student, Khadija Siddiqui, within a month. Accused Shah Hussain counsel took the plea that it was a case of an ordinary nature and there was no urgency to conduct trial on day-to-day basis. He prayed to declare the chief justice administrative order illegal.

The chief justice earlier had sought a report from Lahore district & sessions judge about progress in this attempt to murder case of a law student.

After submission of the report, the chief justice ordered judicial magistrate Mubashir Hussain Awan to hold trial proceedings on a day-to-day basis and conclude it within 30 days.

The chief justice also directed the director general of district judiciary to keep the LHC updated with the progress of the case by submitting weekly reports.

Khadija Siddiqui, a student at a private law college, was allegedly attacked by her class fellow Shah Hussain on May 3, 2016, near Shimla Hill where she along with driver had gone to pick her younger sister from school.

Both sisters were about to get into their car when helmet wearing suspect attacked Khadija with knife and stabbed her 23 times leaving her critically injured. The Civil Lines police had registered a case against Shah Hussain on charges of attempted murder. The suspect, son of an advocate Tanvir Hashmi, was on post-arrest bail.
