Murad Ali Shah asks state institutions to come forward if Badar Jamil Mandhro was detained by them
KARACHI: The secretary general of the Sindh Human Rights Department, Dr Badar Jamil Mandhro, has been missing since Friday evening, prompting fears that he has been abducted.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, his brother Javed Mandhro said Badar Jamil left his house in Clifton, Karachi for work on Friday and has not been heard from since. “His number is off. There is no contact with him or his driver,” he added.
Sindh Police is investigating the matter, while Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has also taken notice of the incident and sought a report from Inspector General Dr Syed Kaleem Imam and Anti-Corruption Establishment Chairman Muhammad Waseem.
The chief minister has also instructed state institutions to come forward if they have taken Jamil into custody.
It may be mentioned here that Mandhro is under investigation by the National Accountability Bureau over alleged illegal sale of land that caused huge losses to the national exchequer.
