ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed four identical petitions of Hizbut Tahrir for not referring the cases of their kidnapped members to the inquiry commission on missing persons. A two-member bench comprising Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk and Justice Tariq Pervaiz was hearing four petitions filed by the relatives of missing persons of Hizbut Tahrir Kamran Yousaf Zai, Ehsan Dawar Khan, Prof. Muhammad Hanif Qureshi and Muhammad Islam Abid against the federation of Pakistan through Federal Secretary of Interior. The members of HuT Imran Yousafzai, Hayyan Dawar, Osama Hanif and Dr Abdul Qayyum went missing in July. Umer Hayat Sindhu, counsel for the petitioners, told the bench that his clients were kidnapped in July last and claimed the intelligence agencies were involved in it, therefore, by sending their cases to the inquiry commission on missing persons the apex court should itself resolve the matter. The counsel said that the inquiry commission is incomplete, as the Interior Ministry has failed yet to appoint its chairman, adding their cases would be delayed if sent to the commission and the accused persons could take advantage of it. Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk hearing the case remarked that the matter is still pending in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), therefore, the apex court could not hear it. Talking to media after the hearing, Umer Sindhu said that intelligence agencies are not implementing the IHC verdict and still the Director General ISI has not submitted a written statement at the high court.
