The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday summoned Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar in a case pertaining to a minor who had gone missing earlier this year, ARY News reported.

As per the details, the court summoned the provincial chief executive of Punjab as it heard a petition filed by the mother of three-year-old Abdul Rafay.

Expressing displeasure over the authorities’ attitude, the court remarked if anything happened to the child, all authorities concerned would be responsible.


Earlier, Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Shoaib Dastagir appeared before the court. “If this is the attitude of the IGP, what could be expected from others?” the court asked as it reprimanded the provincial police chief over the force’s failure to recover Rafay.

IG Dastagir sought from court another two week’s time to recover the missing minor.
