2006-06-07 India-Pakistan||Detention of suspected militant: LHC orders written response from DAG
The Lahore High Court on Tuesday directed the deputy attorney general (DAG) to give in writing the whereabouts of Hafiz Atif Idrees, allegedly arrested for being an Al Qaeda activist. Petitioner Hafiz Muhammad Asif, Idrees's brother, had moved a petition seeking his brother's release. "Idrees went to attend business classes at the Lahore campus of Allama Iqbal Open University in August, 2004, but did not return," he said. |
Asif accused intelligence agencies of arresting his brother. "A man identifying himself as Major Usman visited me six months ago and told me that intelligence agencies had detained my brother on suspicion of being an Al Qaeda activist," he said. Usman handed over Idrees's motorcycle and other belongings, and said that the latter would be released soon, he added. "However, my brother has not returned yet." The petitioner said his brother had not been involved in criminal activities and his detention unjustified.
