LHC asks Home Secretary to submit reply about disappearance of heirs of Fahim, Faizan

LAHORE, March 22 : The Lahore High Court (LHC) has asked the Home Secretary to submit reply within four days about the disappearance of heirs of Fahim and Faizan, killed by US national Raymond Davis.

During the hearing of a petition in the LHC on Tuesday, police expressed ignorance regarding the disappearance of the families of Faizan Haider and Faheem.

Advocate Malik Munsif Awan filed a petition in the court on March 18, seeking the recovery of the missing families who had disappeared after they received blood-money for pardoning Davis.

The petitioner had said that neither the federal nor provincial governments had tried to determine the whereabouts of the missing people. He had also requested the court to summon the authorities and direct them to recover the missing families and produce them before the court.

During proceedings, the court enquired from CCPO Lahore Aslam Tareen as to who was responsible for the death of Ibadur Rehman, who was killed when a US consulate car sent to assist Davis crushed him.

Aslam Tareen, in his reply, said that houses of the victim families were lying locked while their neighbours were reluctant to share any information about their current addresses.

Assistant Advocate General said that families of the murdered men were free to go anywhere after accepting blood money and that they could not be stopped.

However, the petitioner argued that the missing families could face threats because of heavy amount they received as Diyat.

The court termed the written statement of CCPO incomplete and directed Punjab Home Secretary Shahid Khan to submit a reply on March 28.
