SC asks police to take action against MI Major - The News International

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court Tuesday ordered police to take action against Major Haider of Military Intelligence (MI) allegedly involved in abduction of one Tasif.

The court also directed the defence secretary to inform the police about the address of Major Haider within 10 days. The order was issued by a two-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Chaudhry Ejaz Ahmad during the hearing of missing person Tasif case.

Justice Chaudhry Ejaz Ahmad remarked that police should take action against Major Haider as per law and Tasif should be recovered and presented in the court.At the beginning of the hearing, the court was told that Major Haider and Tasif had partnership in timber business. Wife of Tasif contacted Major Haider after disappearance of her husband and the latter assured her that her husband was safe and soon she would get good news.

Ibrahim Satti advocate, counsel for MI, had filed application in the court that any proceeding can be initiated against army personnel under Army Act and police or other institutions are not authorised to arrest serving armed forces personnel or officers. Deputy Attorney General Tariq Khokhar had filed reply in the SC on behalf of MI wherein it was said that Major Haider and Tasif had certain private matters between them and its responsibility does not rest with MI.

The hearing of the case was adjourned for three weeks.

During the hearing of another missing person case, Justice Chaudhry Ejaz Ahmad remarked that performance of police was a question mark and it was the duty of police to ensure protection of citizens. "Police fear merely from talking to officers of intelligence agencies. What will they do if they had to recover some missing person from sensitive agencies. IG Punjab should produce missing lawyer on next hearing no matter whatever he intends to do," he observed during the hearing of missing Zahir Ahmad Gondal advocate case.

Petitioner Asif Taufiq advocate told the court that police was showing slackness and they know where the missing lawyer is. "We are sure the missing advocate has been picked up by intelligence agencies. The number of missing lawyers is growing day by day and over eight lawyers have gone missing up till now," he submitted.

Rawalpindi police told the court that adequate steps have been taken for the protection of lawyers. They said better security arrangements have been put in police in district court, high court premises where the offices of the lawyers are located. "We are in contact with intelligence agencies but they are not providing any reply to us," police told the court.

The court reprimanded the CCPO saying that police performance was next to nil. "They (police) appear in the SC, present report on paper and then go for a long sleep. We will not tolerate this now," Justice Chaudhry Ejaz Ahmad remarked. The court directed the deputy attorney general to contact sensitive agencies on his own, obtain information about the missing advocate from them and present the information in the court. The court issued notices to intelligence agencies and IG Punjab and sought reply from them till August 30.
