The Supreme Court was shocked on Monday after the DPO of Sargodha said that the police had recovered 151 young women abducted in the city in the last one year.

The DPO Dr Rizwan told the court that 21 out of 151 abducted women were rescued from brothels and other were recovered from small districts in Punjab. The operation was conducted on a court order, he added.

Justice Maqbool Baqir who was hearing the case of abduction of Sobia Batool from Sargodha remarked that the abduction of 151 girls from such a small area is an incompetence and failure of the police. The court also questioned the DPO whether the recovered girls had their FIRs registered and ordered the SHOs of the police stations where the cases were registered should also have been notified.

The apex court directed the IG Punjab to take steps for the recovery of the abducted girls across the province.
