ISLAMABAD - Leader of the House in Senate, Senator Raza Rabbani Thursday told the House that government had taken serious notice of Dr Aafia's case besides the matter of other missing persons. Responding to points of order over the issue, he alleged the previous government for handing over Dr Aafia to US. However, he said the Foreign Minister was in regular contact with US authorities for providing her all possible help. Rabbani informed the House that the Interior Ministry had formed a committee for the recovery of all the missing persons, including those, he said, who had been picked up on political grounds in Balochistan. He also assured to inform the House about the proceedings of Dr Aafia's case, which is being heard in US. Other senators, both from treasury and Opposition benches, too, expressed their concern over detention of Dr Aafia Siddiqui. Senator Saadia Abbasi questioned how she had been handed over to US when the constitution didn't allow extradition of any Pakistani. Professor Ibrahim termed the charge sheet against Dr Aafia as fake and said she had no contacts with any terrorist organization. Senator Kamran Murtaza suggested the government to form a special committee to probe the matter of missing persons as, he said, so many other families, too, were suffering for recovering their dear ones. He alleged that some circles among the previous government had made money by handing over their countrymen to other countries. Moreover, the Upper House of the Parliament continued debate over the issues of security and price hike in the country. While opening the debate, Leader of the Opposition in Senate, Senator Kamil Ali Agha said that the government had failed to control inflation and rampant increase in crimes' rate in the country. He said that prices of the daily use commodities had been soared up by 40 per cent during the past four  months. Similarly, he said, the crimes' rate in the country was going up unchecked. He referred to the media reports, which stated that dacoits had looted Rs 630 million in Rawalpindi and Rs 320 million in Karachi in a single day. He also criticized the government for increasing Haj fares on the plea of increasing prices of diesel and petrol, despite the fact, he said, that their prices were on the decline in international market. Kamil Ali Agha regretted that a Dubai-based banker was being provided relief under NRO and said that it was unfortunate that the government was providing relief to bankers while the poor were being left deprived.
