Faisal Sabzwari says recoveries resulting due to MQM-P-PTI dialogue
After the coming of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) into power, the missing political workers of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) have gradually started returning to their homes, BBC Urdu reported on Friday.
MQM-P senior leader Faisal Sabzwari also confirmed that in past one month, as many as 12 workers of the party have been recovered. He said as per the police’ record, they were kept on different locations.
He said that this process has started as a result of ongoing political dialogue between his party and PTI’s government.
On the other hand, a Sindh High Court bench comprising Justice Rehmatullah Phalphoro and Justice Abdur Rasheed Soomro on Thursday heard the missing persons case. On this occasion, the police report was submitted before the court which claimed that eight more people, who were missing from months, have returned back to their homes.
According to the police, the recovered persons include Furqan Siddiqi, Iftikhar, Muhammad Hussain, Abdur Rehman, Muhammad Javed, Ishratullah and Muhammad Ali.
On this occasion, a previously missing person was produced before the court after which he was inquired by the bench about the reason behind his disappearance. However, the victim denied any knowledge of that despite the court’s insistence.
Justice Rehmatullah stated that the recovery of missing people is a sigh of relief which has come after the court’s tireless efforts, giving more hope to affected families.
The wife of a recently recovered person, Muhammad Ali, Afsheen said that his husband was arrested from near Central Jail by an unknown number of people and taken into a double cabin vehicle after which he had gone missing.
It is worth mentioning that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government in 2013 had launched an operation against targeted killing and extortion which was later included in the National Action Plan, which was made after the Peshawar attack.
