LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Chiniot District Police Officer (DPO) Shahzad Akbar, SHO Muhammad Younis and ASI Mazhar Iqbal for not recovering an abducted girl and also not appearing before the court.
The court ordered the deputy inspector general to recover the missing girl and produce her before the court on August 27. On the previous hearing, the court had postponed the case after the DPO assured the court that he would recover the girl, but neither he turned up on Thursday nor the girl was produced.
Hafiz Muhammad Aslam, father of the missing girl, had moved the petition for recovery of his daughter.
The petitioner’s counsel alleged that influential people of the area raped his daughter and on a complaint, the Chiniot Sadar Police Station had lodged the case against them. He said that a few days after the incident, SHO Muhammad Younis, ASI Mazhar Iqbal along with Mehdi Hassan and Shaukat came to his house and took his daughter with them to conduct her DNA in Lahore.
He alleged that since then his daughter had not retuned home and he contacted police time and again but they gave no satisfactory answer about her whereabouts. He sought directions for the recovery of his daughter.
