SUKKUR:


Hundreds of people held a demonstration, called by the Hindu Panchayat, demanding the arrests of the men who killed Dr Puran Mal and trader Sunil Kumar, in front of the Thul Press Club on Monday.


Workers of political parties, including Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan, Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaaz, Jeay Sindh Mahaaz, Sindh Taraqi Pasand Party and others took part. The protest was led by the president of the Hindu Panchayat, Ramesh Lal, Baghi Khoso, Jawed Anwar Channa and others.

The protesters said that the Hindus have been targeted for a long time, and the police have not provided them protection.

The government is bound by duty to protect the minorities, but it seems that criminals have been given a free hand to target Hindus, they claimed. They demanded immediate arrests.

Hindu Panchayat Thull president Mukhi Ramesh Lal said that both men were gunned down during an attempted robbery last week.
