OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE - Additional District and Sessions Judge Malik Mubeen Ahmad on Friday dismissed an application on account of non-prosecution. Filed by the Judicial Activism Panel, it had sought restoration of a habeas corpus petition for the recovery of Sapna Khan and her daughter. Mrs Sapna, it may be recalled here, is the third wife of former Punjab chief minister Dost Muhammad Khosa. The baby girl is from the couples wedlock. Earlier, the court had dismissed the habeas petition for purpose of prosecution. But the petitioner and JAP chairman Muhammad Azhar Saddique advocate filed a new application for the restoration of his previous plea. The petitioner said that his subordinate Irfan Mukhtar advocate was present in the court and also marked the attendance before the reader of the court. Previously, the court had sought replies from CCPO Ahmad Raza Tahir and SHO Race Course in this regard. The petitioner said that a news item about the incident was published in a local daily on July 7 last and it remained un-contradicted and unchallenged. The counsel contended that Sapna Khan, a showbiz star, was last seen outside of the official residence of Mr Khosa in GOR-I holding a baby in her lap. She was mercilessly beaten by the friends of the former CM who also took her away in a car to some unknown place, the original petition had contended. On Friday, the judge dismissed the application owing to non-prosecution, saying that no one appeared on behalf of the applicant. The judge further observed: This shows that the applicant is uninterested in the restoration of the petition. So the current application for the restoration of petition is dismissed. CCPO TOLD TO PUNISH SHO: An Additional District and Sessions Judge on Friday directed the CCPO to register a criminal case, under sections 155-C and 155-D of the Police Ordinance 2002, against the Ghaziabad SHO for not complying with court orders in a habeas corpus petition filed by a mother seeking recovery of her kids from the custody of her husband. Hafizan Bibi had filed the petition in court of ASJ Chaudhry Aurangzeb that his husband was keeping his two-year daughter Momina and eight-month old Arman Ali in illegal custody. She told the court that she married to Shafqat Ali on October 21, 2007 but after some time relations between them became strained, on account of which finally his husband kicked her out from his house on July 28, 2011 and also snatched her two children. She pleaded that she contacted some of her familys notables, who approached her husband but he refused to give back the kids. She contended that she also contacted the SHO, but he, too, did not listen to her. She prayed before the court to direct the police concerned to hand over her kids after recovering them from her husband. On which, the judge had ordered the SHO to produce the kids on August 11. But the cop did not follow the court orders. So, he was served a show cause notice to produce the children on August 12. The SHO even then did not appear before the court. On Friday, SI Muhammad Nawaz appeared and informed the court that neither the respondent not the minors were available at mans residence. The judge stated in the order that the police was directed to produce the minors in the court after recovery from the custody of respondent. They have aided the respondent to slip away along with the minors, the judge ruled.
