ISLAMABAD - A kidnapping case Friday took a strange turn when Regional Police Officer, Rawalpindi, Aslam Tarin informed the Supreme Court that the kidnapped Nadia Mushtaq was in custody of UC Nazim in Nawabshah, a district in Sindh province. During the course of the proceeding, the RPO informed the three-member bench that the victim was kidnapped by Rawalpindi based kidnappers and later handed over to Rano Khan Jiskani, UC Nazim in Tehsil Sakrand of Nawabshah. Amina w/o Mazhar Jatoi, who was kidnapped by this group and later handed over to Rano Khan, registered an FIR at Airport Police Station, saying that dozens of women were in custody of UC Nazim Rano Shah. Bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry was hearing a suo moto notice pertaining to the abduction of Nadia Mushtaq from Rawalpindi. Sughra Hasan, Nadia Mushtaq, Rukkaya, Nasim, Bushra, Perveen and many others were imprisoned in a house where they were pushed to sexual harassment, the court was further informed. Mazhar also appealed to Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif and SSP Operations Rawalpindi to take action against the notorious gang of kidnappers, who kidnapped the girls and then handed them over to Rano Khan, the City Police Officer Rao Iqbal informed the court. During the hearing, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja asked RPO why they could not trace the applicant Mazhar and his wife, although his wife had been released after two months and had come and registered an FIR with Airport Police in which she had stated that Nadia Mushtaq was also in custody of UC Nazim. The RPO told the bench that the applicant could not be traced at her address mentioned in her NIC. The NIC is Chiniot based but NADRA had no record of a NIC from the said district, he explained. Meanwhile, Ghafar, who was in custody of Airport police, informed the court that the police have imprisoned him illegally since months. Although the court has called me innocent yet the police have not released me, he explained. Chief Justice ordered CPO to register an FIR against the involved police officer and take strict action against him. The bench ordered RPO and CPO to trace Amina and her husband so that the kidnapped Nadia Mushtaq can be traced by next hearing. It may be recalled that the court on 14th October expressed dissatisfaction over the performance of the Punjab Police and directed them to recover and produce in court a girl who had been abducted four years ago. Punjab Inspector General Police had been summoned to appear before the court. Appearing before the court, a special superintendent of police SSP informed the court the IG had arrived in Rawalpindi on Wednesday night and had met with higher officers to discuss the case.
