Kakar calls for halt to accusations against state during IHC hearing on Baloch missing persons in Pakistan


Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar finally appeared before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in a case pertaining to missing Baloch students after being summoned for the third time. During the hearing presided over by Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, Kakar emphasized the need to stop allegations against the state. The Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances, established in 2011 to trace missing persons, was a central focus of the hearing. The IHC had previously warned of a potential case against PM Kakar if missing Baloch students were not reunited with their families. Attorney General for Pakistan Mansoor Usman Awan provided updates on missing persons during the hearing. The court also issued directives for constituting a joint committee of intelligence agencies to trace missing students. The hearing also addressed concerns about enforced disappearances and emphasized the importance of upholding the law. Prime Minister Kakar highlighted the challenges faced in addressing forced disappearances and emphasized the need for all parties to come together to solve the issue. The hearing concluded with AGP Awan providing further arguments in the form of a document.
