Islamabad (Web Desk): Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has claimed that number of missing persons will be “zero” in the next six months.
In an interview with DW, Chaudhry said that a significant decrease has been noted during the tenure of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the number of missing person cases and it would be zero in next months.
Fawad said that the biggest number of missing persons was in the previous era – from 2013 to 2018. “During our tenure, the number of missing persons has visibly declined. In the next six months, the number will be zero.”
The government, he said, is bringing out a law through which missing persons could be prosecuted.
“The PTI-led government is taking all possible measures and the situation has improved,” the minister said and added that Prime Minister Imran Khan is very clear on the issue of missing persons that there should be no such case without a proper legal course.
