Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday met a three-member delegate committee of the relatives of missing persons — who held a seven-days sit-in in the capital last month — and dedicated to keeping them informed regarding the advancement made on determining the status of their missing family members.
Particulars about the discussion were communicated by Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari in a tweet. Mazari, who also joined the meeting, said Prime Minister Imran had instructed the principal secretary to “determine quickly the accurate status of the missing family members” while confirming the relatives that they would be kept informed about the pursuit.
The premier also stressed that the government’s bill to ban enforced vanishings would be “fast-traced along with whatever other laws required to be revised”, Mazari added. He also questioned to be “kept notified about the progress on [finding] the situation of the missing family affiliates”.
Last month, a number of marchers — covering 10 families of missing men and around a hundred backers — had congregated to hold a sit-in in Islamabad.
For seven days, protesters held up pictures of missing family members under the observation police encircling them.
Though, they halted their protest after Mazari visited them at Express Chowk where they were protesting and convinced them that Prime Minister Imran would join a three-member representative team from among them.
