ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday directed the Gujranwala police to recover two sisters abducted from Naushera Virkan some two years ago and gave six-week time to ensure their recovery.
Deposed chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had taken suo moto action on abduction of two sisters from Nowshera Virkan, Gujranwala, some two years back.
Humaira and Sumaira, daughters of Aish Muhammad Syed, went missing from outside their house over two years ago. The Naushera, Virkan police had registered a case against unidentified persons in 2005.
A three-member bench of the Supreme Court, comprising the newly appointed Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar, Justice Mohammad Moosa K Laghari and Justice Mian Hamid Farooq Khan, while hearing the case also directed the Gujranwala police to submit a report before the court if the abducted two sisters were out of the country.
During the hearing, Punjab Assistant Advocate General Afshan Ghazanfar and Gujranwala police appeared before the bench.
Meanwhile, the bench directed Gujranwala police to recover the abducted sisters within six weeks and warned that no more time would be given to the police in this regard.
During the last hearings of the case, the deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had ordered the Gujranwala police to ensure recovery of two sisters. The police had repeatedly told the court that they were trying their level best to recover them, adding that they had received information that both the girls had been taken to the United Arab Emirates and then to the United Kingdom.
The police had sought more time-from the apex court for the recovery of the girls.
