“Is it the failure of state,” questioned Justice Kayani. The state hasn’t failed yet as the authorities are trying to recover the missing poet, replied Attorney General Mansoor Awan.

The IHC ordered the defence secretary to appear before the court on the next hearing to explain the working of ISI. “The law and order situation is alarming. There is a dire need of transparency in the working of ISI,” the court observed.

“How many officials are working under a sector commander,” the court asked and added that a mechanism would now be made for the recovery of missing persons.

Ahmed Farhad Shah had been allegedly abducted from his home on May 15.
