KARACHI (Dunya News) - The Sindh High Court has ordered swift action for the recovery of missing persons and the registration of cases against those responsible.

The SHC heard a case regarding the disappearance of a citizen from Karachi's central district. 

The petitioner's counsel stated that Fazal Meer was apprehended by unidentified persons forcefully while he was picking up his brother after his release on bail from the central jail. 

Justice Naimatullah remarked that such acts would not be tolerated, expressing dismay that one brother was missing while the other was released.
