ISLAMABAD:

The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday rejected Punjab IG prisons report on the illegal detention case.


The court has ordered the IG to present 11 people, who had been released from Adiala Jail but were retained by the jail administration illegally. They had been arrested on charges of terrorism, but orders for their release were issued when the prosecution failed to prove charges.


Earlier, while hearing the case, the Supreme Court rejected the IG Prisons report regarding the missing prisoners.


The court has directed the IG to present these people or everybody responsible including the DCO will be sent to jail. The chief secretary of Punjab has also been summoned in the case.


Last week, the Adiala Jail Superintendent of Police Saeedullah Gondal and Deputy Superintendent of Police Khalid Bashir were arrested from outside the Supreme Court for the disappearance of 11 men who had been acquitted of the charges of four terrorism cases in June.
