Jibran Nasir’s kidnapping case is reported to have been registered in Karachi on Friday.

The prominent lawyer and human rights activist was abducted last night at gunpoint from Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority (DHA) area.

An FIR on the kidnapping of  Jibran Nasir was registered on the complaint of his wife, Mansha Pasha, at the Clifton Police Station under two sections of the Pakistan Penal Code — 365 (kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine a person) and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).

According to Pasha, the Police at first were not registering the FIR.

She said she would move the court if the law enforcers did not register the case.

In the filed FIR, Mansha Pasha stated: “On 01.06.2023 at about 11:00 pm, I was returning from dinner with my husband in our personal car … when a white color Toyota Hilux / Vigo … intercepted and hit our car from the front-left side and forced us to stop near Ideal Bakery on 26th Street, Defence Phase 5, Karachi.”

FIR added: “Another vehicle i.e. a Silver Corolla blocked our vehicle from behind and as such, we were surrounded. Some 15 people along with weapons came out from the said vehicles in civil clothes and forced my husband to get out of the car, man-handling him towards the subject vehicle. They then abducted him and took him away and his whereabouts are unknown till now.”

In her application, Jibran Nasir’s wife also requested immediate action be taken to ensure his swift release.

“In light of the above-mentioned situation, I have no other recourse than to approach your office for registration of my complaint for my missing husband. I would be thankful if immediate action is taken for his swift release. Furthermore, action in accordance with law must be taken against those who abducted my husband,” she wrote.

Following the news of Jibran Nasir’s abduction, the hashtag #ReleaseJibranNasir trends on social media.


Civil society and human rights organizations condemned the incident and demanded that Nasir should be returned home safely and quickly.
