Where is the Senior most judge of Supereme Court of Pakistan Mr. Justice Bhagwan Das? Who had to become care-taking Chief Justice of Pakistan in absence of Mr. Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary.
As per official information available to media, he is in India on private holidays. Where exactly he is? This is unknown to the authorities.
When BBC contacted Pakistan’s High Commission in India about Justice Bhagwan Das’s visit to India – they said that they do not know anything about his visit to India. Rather they said that they have come to know about his visit to India through media!!! mind doesn’t accept such a lie.
He is serving on one of the most senior posts in the country, he must have informed the high commission – only if he is in India?
If what High Commission is saying, is correct & to be believed then there should be a reference filed against him that he is visiting an enemy state without informing High Commission?
When BBC tried to contact his brother Sri Chand in Karachi about Justice’s visit to India & about his possible return to Pakistan, he said that flight went to Delhi from Karachi, I don’t know where he has gone since then.
According to some sources he is in a 5 star hotel in Delhi, when that hotel was contacted they negated the news.
then where is he? should we add his name amongst those who are missing in the country?

A few moments ago – It has been learnt that Justice Bhagwan Das is in Lucknow and he is in intermittent touch with his wife over telephone; when her wife was asked to provide Justice’s contact number in Lucknow, she first said that she doesn’t have one, later on she refused to provide Justice’s contact number; she further said that he calls her quite regularly using Public Call office telephone – hence he can not be contacted.
Justice Bhagwan Das is on a private visit to India – he may return to the country on 24th March. Justice Bhagwan Das is the most senior Judge in Supreme Court of Pakistan; he retires in December 2007.
