By Super Admin

Islamabad, Feb.4 (ANI): Acting on the Supreme Court's order, Balochistan police has booked a former Pakistan corps commander and two top Inter Services Intelligence Services (ISI) officials in connection with the disappearance of a resident of Quetta.

The intelligence officials have been identified as former Quetta ISI chief Brig. Siddique and another senior ISI official Col. Bangash.

The apex court while hearing a case of disappearance of one Ali Asghar Bangalzai had ordered the concerned authorities to take proper action against the accused.

Bangalzai's son, Ghulam Farooq said that his father along with two others was arrested by intelligence agencies in June 2000. While the other two persons were released days later his father remained in custody for no reasons unknown to the family.

Farooq said despite seeking help from various human rights groups and higher authorities there has been no information about his father till date.

"No police station has been willing to register a case against the intelligence agencies we hold responsible for the disappearance of our father. We are delighted to have finally managed to register a case against the responsible officials by virtue of the independent judiciary's interest in the case," The Daily Times quoted Farooq, as saying.

The SC bench, headed by Justice Javed Iqbal, had ordered the registration of a case against the intelligence officials while hearing the missing citizens' case. (ANI)
