LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Complaint Cell Friday took notice of a press report on administrative side regarding disappearance of a citizen from police custody.

The cell has directed the District & Sessions Judge, Bahawalpur to look into the matter and submit a detailed report regarding steps taken by police along with his own comments within a week.

According to details, Naseem Bibi said the former Derawar SHO Mian Ghazanfar, Sub-inspector Iqbal Shah and Havaldar Muhammad Riaz had arrested her husband Muhammad Ramzan in connivance with Haji Noor Muhammad and Mehmood.

She said they had tortured him during custody and he had either been killed or taken to an unknown location because he was no longer at their lock-up.

She said police had not given her a clear answer regarding his whereabouts. Naseem Bibi along with a large number of people of the area staged a protest at Head Rajkaan Bridge against police for recovery of her husband.

Police lodged Bibi’s complaint and undertook to recover the missing man in two days but in vain.
