ISLAMABAD: The Lahore High Court on Monday disposed off a petition seeking whereabouts of Majlis-e -Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM) leader Syed Nasir Abbas after he was produced before it.
A LHC bench was hearing the petition filed by the missing MWM leader’s brother, Syed Ali Abbas, who approached the court seeking directives for the law enforcement agencies to trace and produce his brother before it.
The bench disposed off the petition after the law enforcement officials produced the missing man in the court.
Earlier, the petitioner had claimed four armed men picked up his brother from Lahore’s Wapda Town in an elite force’s vehicle and neither did they disclose his whereabouts nor presented him in any court of law.
Nasir was abducted on the behest of Law Minister Rana Sanaullah because the former had moved the high court seeking the latter’s disqualification for giving controversial remarks against LHC’s Justice Ali Baqar Najafi, he alleged.
The petitioner, therefore, pleaded that the law enforcement agencies be directed to produce his missing brother in the court. He further requested it to direct police to provide security because he feared for his life.
It is important to note here that one-man judicial commission headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najai had carried out a probe into the Model Town incident that had left over a dozen people dead and more than a hundred injured.
On July 17, 2014, 14 people were killed and 100 others injured when the police opened fire to disperse protesting PAT workers during an anti-encroachment operation outside the residence of PAT chief Dr. Tahirul Qadri.
