The bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain was hearing a review application filed by Abdul Razzak Sarki, father of Fazeela Sarki, who was allegedly kidnapped in 2007 and remains untraceable since then.

Rasheed A Razvi advocate appeared for the poor man seeking review of an order passed by another division bench which had disposed off a suo motu notice taken by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.
