CJP takes notice of women trafficking in twin cities


ISLAMABAD: The Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has taken notice of women trafficking in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

The notice was taken on a news story published under caption “Women trafficking in twin cities goes on unchecked” and a column “Sub Gongay Kun Ho Gay” narrating the story of a 40-year-old woman, mother of three hailing from Rawalpindi, who was sold to different hands and reached Afghanistan.

Her abductors demanded Rs300,000- to return the lady while police admitted that it couldn’t do anything in this situation.

The story further revealed that innumerable women from Pakistan were sold to Afghanistan by an organised gang (more than 150 members), through fake marriage deeds. There were also many cases where women were used for sex slavery.

The husband of the abducted woman, received a phone call of an agent from Afghanistan who demanded Rs.300,000- to release his wife otherwise he would sell her to someone else.

Taking notice of the issue, the CJP has summoned reports from IGP, Islamabad and Punjab within three days.
