KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected on Thursday the police reports on missing children as unsatisfactory and ordered them to submit another progress report by November 15. A two-member bench, headed by Justice Naimatullah Phulpoto, heard the case and expressed displeasure with the reports. It said that the police performance has been non-serious. According to the police reports, Sindh Inspector-General (IG) formed a committee comprising senior officers of the Anti-Violent Crime Cell, Anti-Car Lifting Cell, and others, which has been in touch with the parents of missing children in Karachi and police of other provinces. The Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Amin Yousufzai informed the court that prior to a previous hearing of the case, two missing children had been recovered, and since 2014, 129 children have been recovered.
During the proceedings, the parents of a missing girl, Saima who went missing from Baldia Town, informed the court that she had been missing for two years. “The police were not cooperative.”
The bench ordered the police to look into all aspects of the cases of missing children.
