LAHORE: 

The call record of the missing Canadian national Rajvindar Kaur Gill has showed that she contacted various phone numbers in Pakistan 607 times from Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates from June 1 to August 31.

From her cell phone 1141798343407, she contacted eight mobile phones. Most of her contacts were through SMS, her call data revealed. She made eight calls and sent one MMS and 598 SMS messages to the eight numbers.

The call record has been provided by her father Sikander Singh Gill to the Lahore High Court holding proceedings for her recovery on his petition.

An official privy to investigations told The Express Tribune on condition of anonymity that before reaching Pakistan, Kaur made several calls to President’s Advisor Rehman Malik and PPP leader Imtiaz Safdar Warraich. She also contacted Dilawar at the Foreign Office. He said she was also in contact with Kabira, a black magic practitioner in the UK, and a ‘magician’ in Pakistan. He said she had also been in contact with a ‘suspicious man’ in Karachi.

The LHC on Monday summoned the capital city police officer (CCPO) to appear in person on January 2 and brief the court on efforts being made for her recovery.

Justice Sheikh Najamul Hassan issued the order after going through a report filed by the CCPO through Assistant Advocate General Arif Yaqoob. The report stated that on December 6, he was informed about the missing woman. He said the city police had no information about Kaur’s whereabouts and that she was not wanted in any case.

The judge said he was shocked that despite the matter being in the notice of the chief minister, there had been no progress on it.

Through Advocate Aftab Ahmad Bajwa, Gill informed the court that his 41-year-old daughter had travelled from Canada to Lahore on August 25, 2012, to attend a conference and a diamonds auction. Then she went missing. He said he had contacted the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) which contacted Interpol and other agencies to search out his daughter but all efforts proved fruitless.

From

Gill said that he had submitted an application to Indian Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal who, during his visit to Lahore for the Asian Kabaddi Tournament, had handed a copy of the application to Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. The chief minister had then directed SSP Sahibzada Shahzad Sultan to locate Kaur. He said he reached Lahore on December 20, 2012 and was in contact with various officials and the Canadian Embassy for the recovery of his daughter but no one was paying heed to his problem.

He said he was sure that his daughter went missing in Pakistan as her exit record was not available with Pakistani officials. He said he had provided all record of his daughter i.e her citizenship card 3053017, Canadian passport JE740074, Cell phone number 11-41-79-834-3407 and cell phone (IEMI) 354321045161686.

Kaur’s call record proved that she contacted the following numbers in Pakistan through calls, SMS and MMS. She contacted 00924008555863 for 531 times (SMS, one MMS and 5 calls). She sent an SMS to 00923434068438. She called up at 00923157365247 once and sent 38 SMS to this number. She called 00923335251212 and 00923008562666 and sent six SMS to the second number.

She sent two SMS to 00923005574191, 15 SMS to 00923458276794 and 11 SMS to 00923005559393.

    @DilliNiwasi

    The purpose of her visit and so many calls to officials was to find a Pakistani husband for herself. She was frustrated among her folks in Canada.
