ISLAMABAD - Chief Justice of Pakistan on Thursday directed the Attorney General to take personal interest in tracing out the whereabouts of a missing person from Swat.

According to the petitioner, her son Muhammad Zakria disappeared on 8th September 2012 from Swat. Since then she had been knocking at every door but could not find out the whereabouts of her son.

The chief justice remarked that the missing persons’ cases are of sensitive nature and if they are held internment centres then their names should be disclosed and if they are required in cases then their trial should be held.

The chief justice said the efforts should be made to end the adversaries of the missing persons’ families.

The petitioner’s lawyer told that three sons of Bilqees have already been killed and the workers of Edhi Centre have buried them, adding now Muhammad Zakria is the fourth son of Bilqees, who is also missing.

Attorney General for Pakistan Ashthar Ausaf informed that he has obtained information from all the internment centers but Zakria is not there.

However, the court asked the AG to take personal interest in the matter and adjourned the case for two weeks.

Meanwhile, a three-judge bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, upholding Lahore High Court judgment acquitted two convicts involved in a murder case.
