The order said, DPO Sargodha stated said that 21 more girls were rescued from brothels.
The DPO told the court that FIRs were registered from 2018 to 2022 after recovery. The apex court said in the order that it was hoped that Sobia Batool would be recovered soon. IG Punjab should give quarterly report in this regard.
The order said that the increasing incidents of abduction of girls proved the indifference of the Punjab Police, which was a bad reflection of its past performance. The court said that the abduction of young girls for shameful exploitation shows the indifference of Punjab police.
It is unfortunate that so many girls could not be traced in a long time.
