The Sindh High Court has summoned the chief of the Citizens-Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) to court on May 25 in a missing person’s case.
A division bench, comprising Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Shahid Anwar Bajwa, was hearing a petition filed by Beena Khalid, who said that her husband, Khalid Shamim, has been missing since January 6 when he left for work.
Khalid, a Karachi Water and Sewage Board employee, stopped at an ATM on Malir Halt where unidentified men on a car with a green licence plate took him away. Later, Beena received an anonymous call from a mobile phone (No. 0345 6240413).
A federal law officer told the court that the caller had information about Khalid. Beena called back several times but to no avail. The bench had then asked the CPLC and the interior ministry to trace the call and identify the caller.
Since there was no progress, the bench has now summoned the CPLC chief to court.
