Supreme Court of Pakistan expressed high level discouragement to the intelligence agencies playing a role in the displacement of individuals without taking any legal action on Monday while hearing the case of ‘missing persons’.

A panel of two judges which included Justice Tariq Pervaz and Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry ordered the police of Islamabad to submit a report within two weeks regarding the missing persons who survived Adiyala Jail imprisonment. Justices also ordered the Attorney General (AG) of Islamabad Police Bani Amin to conduct meeting with the concerned top leadership and define the role of intelligence agencies in the case of missing persons.

The case proceedings taking place are in respect to one of the missing persons, Omar Mahmood, 24, who went missing on the 10th March but was mysteriously found seven days later without any legal grounds of taking him into custody.

Speaking before the apex court, Omer informed the justices that he has no idea who had kidnapped him.

Omar Mahmood was abducted in daylight in front of his family but unknown person and held for a week, where he was released later due to the increased pressure from the SC on police authorities who had ordered the Islamabad Police to produce Omar Mahmood at any cost.
