On July 18, the Lahore High Court directed the authorities concerned to produce Punjab police encounter specialist Abid Boxer before it.

Justice Anwarul Haq of the LHC gave this order after he was informed that Boxer has been in the custody of the authorities since February this year.

Deputy Attorney General Syed Zafar Abbas Gilani told the court that former police officer, who was allegedly involved in many criminal acts, including murder, attempted murder and land-grabbing, has been brought back to Pakistan from Dubai in February.

Earlier this year, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and police had shown ignorance about the whereabouts of former cop in their replies submitted to the court.

In February, it was reported that the notorious encounter specialist has been arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in connection with a fraud case and extradited to Pakistan through Interpol. However, the official word was that he has not been taken into custody.
