Former senator and senior lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan has filed a constitutional petition in the Supreme Court challenging the practice of enforced disappearances in Pakistan. Ahsan’s move comes as the PTI is facing a crackdown and complaints following riots that occurred after the arrest of party chairman Imran Khan. The petition argues that enforced disappearances violate constitutional rights and international law obligations. Ahsan has requested the formation of a commission led by a Supreme Court justice to investigate the issue. The petition also calls for the release of all disappeared persons in state custody and for a report to be submitted identifying those responsible for the practice. Ahsan highlights several cases of individuals who went missing but later reappeared, often switching political loyalties and denouncing their previous party. The petition also addresses the issue of missing persons in Balochistan, particularly the Baloch people who have historically been affected by these disappearances.
