Abdul Qadir Qayyum, a Lahore-based daring Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police, has not only contradicted the report submitted by Army’s Chief of General Staff before the Supreme Court of Pakistan in a missing person’s case but also proved that the accused Major who served in the Military Intelligence is currently performing his duties at Awaraan, Balochistan, a seven page investigation report a copy of which is also available to The News/Geo News revealed here on Tuesday.
 
Colonel Suhail Ahmad, on behalf of Chief of General Staff Lieutenant General Rashid Mahmood had submitted a one page document before the Supreme Court that Tasif Ali, a missing person, was “neither apprehended nor held in custody of Military Intelligence”, the claim which was already submitted before the same court through Ministry of Defence.
 
Dr Abida Malik had reported to the Police, Sadiqabad Police Station, Rawalpindi that her husband Tasif went missing on November 23, 2012, a day after he had exchanged harsh words with Major Haider of Military Intelligence by phone. She reported that matter to police in May 2013.
 
Dr Abida had collected the mobile number of the alleged accused MI Major from her husband’s note book and provided the number to the police which became the reason to identify the accused who has now been “transferred from 918 Intelligence Bt to 61 Punjab and later from, “61 Punjab to 9 Punjab” by MS branch of General Headquarters, and now the accused is serving in Awaraan, Balochistan. “All out efforts are underway for the recovery of alleged abductee Tasif Ali,” the copy of the report says further.
 
Abdul Qadir Qayyum, DIG Investigation of Punjab Police, who was specially appointed by the Supreme Court for investigation of the said case reveals in his seven page report that the Investigation Officer (I.O) of Punjab Police, on May 15, 2013 also wrote to the Deputy Director, Intelligence Bureau’s (IB), Technical Wing, Islamabad to provide the calls data of the two cell phone numbers of the missing Tasif Ali, however, no reply to the I.O has been furnished yet.
 
Meanwhile, I.O obtained the SIM issuance record of the cell phone allegedly remained under the use of accused Major Haider which was found registered in the name of Amjad Ali s/o Bawar Shah a resident of District Mardan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. I.O approached Bawar Shah, the father of Amjad Ali and found out that Amjad Ali was actually living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for the last three years and was not even aware of the SIM being used under his name.
 
The I.O also met a friend of abductee Tasif Ali in Mirpur Azad Kashmir who informed him that Tasif Ali was working as Commander of Hizb-ul-Mujhaideen. According to the report, Tasif remained in contact with Capt. Haider who was posted at MI-918 Mangla Cantt earlier. Later on, he was posted as Major at Mirpur, MI 909.
 
In year 2003, Tasif Ali started business of furniture while he remained in contact with Major Haider but Tasif many a times did not attend the calls of the said intelligence officer, apparently Tasif was distancing himself from his previous master, however, Major Haider wanted his strings in his own hands.
 
The I.O, for getting the address of the accused Major also visited the office of the MI 909 in AJK and written letters to Ministry of Defence and MI Directorate, GHQ Rawalpindi but all in vain.
 
Major General Asim Salim Bajwa, the Director General of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), was contacted by phone to have his version on the story but he was not available despite the efforts.
