The Lahore High Court ruled on Monday on a habeas corpus motion for the recovery of two brothers who were allegedly arrested at the request of Ibrahim Maneka, First Lady’s son from previous husband Khawar Maneka.
Justice Anwarul Haq Pannun disposed of the petition in light of the police report. A law officer told the court that the petitioner’s brothers were detained by Heyr police for being named suspects in a fraud case. Mr. Maneka also appeared before the court.
The petitioner Muhammad Hassan claimed that his two brothers had business relations with Ibrahim Maneka. One of his brothers, Ijaz Ahmad, borrowed a car from Maneka, which was damaged in a road accident. On this subject, he said, Maneka began to demand a huge sum of compensation. He alleged Maneka being an influential person got picked his two brothers, Ijaz and Ahsan, with the help of the local police.
Muhammad Hassan said he approached the respondent for the release of his brothers but he declined to do so until the payment of Rs150 million.
A police report tabled in court at the previous hearing stated that the alleged abductors were in no way required in any case nor were taken into custody.
