Amnesty International South Asia is apprehensive that Muhammad Idris Khattak, a Pakistani human rights defender and independent researcher, is feared to have been subjected to an enforced disappearance. It is said that none have seen him since the evening of 13 November when he was taken by men in plain clothes on a motorway between Islamabad and Peshawar and added that his whereabouts and fate remain unknown to his family. Amnesty International fears that Khattak could be at risk of torture, ill-treatment or worse – as suffered by other victims of enforced disappearance in Pakistan. Khattak is also a patient of diabetes and needs daily medication, it was learnt.
