ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Monday referred a missing person Fazal-e-Rabi’s case to Inquiry Commission on Enforced Disappearance for investigation.

A three-judge bench headed Justice Nasirul Mulk and comprising Justice Sarmad Jalal Usmany and Justice Amir Hani Muslim was hearing the application of Akhunzada, the father of missing person.

Additional Attorney General Attique Shah provided a list of 593 internees, detained in the Internment Centres of FATA. He said the authorities had not Fazal-e-Rabbi’s name in all the internment centers. He said, therefore, the government has decided to send it to the Inquiry Commission on Enforced Disappearance.

The government has constituted a two-member Inquiry Commission headed by Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal for investigating the case of missing persons, whose whereabouts are not known. The court directed the commission to communicate Akhunzada about date of hearing.

Fazal-e-Rabi is missing since June 11, 2009 and an FIR was lodged about his disappearance on 29th November 2011. Justice Hani Muslim questioned why the FIR was registered after two years.

The court disposing of Fazal-e-Rabi case referred it to the Commission.
