ISLAMABAD - The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Islamabad, and Station House Officer (SHO) Aabpara, have been served notice on by Islamabad High Court (IHC) here Wednesday on a petition seeking registration of a criminal case against former President Pervez Musharraf and others. The IHC issued notices to these police officers after hearing arguments on a plea raised by spy turned human rights activist, Khalid Khawaja. Khawaja is seeking registration of a criminal case against former president Pervez Musharraf, former prime minister Shaukat Aziz, former interior minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao, former chief commissioner Islamabad Khalid Pervez, the then deputy commissioner Muhammad Ali and others for allegedly abducting him in January last year. Khawaja is running a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Defence of Human Rights, these days, which is agitating the issue of the missing persons. During the course of arguments before a single bench of IHC comprising Chief Justice Sardar Muhammad Aslam, Khawaja Azhar Rashid, the counsel for the petitioner, contended that operatives of secret agencies kidnapped his client, Khalid Khawaja, on January 26 last year. Khalid Khawaja was badly tortured, he further alleged. He also expressed disappointment on behalf of his client as he failed to lodge a criminal case against the kidnappers due to the influence of respondents. After hearing the grievance, the Chief Justice issued notices to SSP Islamabad and SHO Aabpara directing them to furnish reply within two weeks. IHC will again take up the issue on September 17. Meanwhile, the same court disposed off another constitutional petition that was questioning the eligibility of the presidential candidate Asif Ali Zardari with the observation that the plea might be agitated again after the completion of presidential polls. In his ruling over the petition, the Chief Justice observed that the presidential election was around the corner, process of scrutiny had been already completed without any objection from any of the contestants or anyone else. Thus, the election process at this stage couldn't be withheld, he further remarked. Earlier, Sardar Zaheer Ahmad Advocate objected to the candidature of PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari on the plea that the presidential candidate had submitted his mental disorder certificate in foreign courts of law, besides publicly saying that he had no value for accords and pledges of no significance which was a sheer contrast to the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah, which attach enormous significance with promises and accords.
