HYDERABABD: A three-member board has been constituted to inquire into an alleged assault on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf parliamentary leader of the Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh in Umerkot district.
Hyderabad SSP Adeel Hussain Chandio is to head the board, which comprises Mirpurkhas SSP Javed Baloch and Tharparkar SSP Abdullah Ahmad. The board will conduct an inquiry of the FIR lodged at Kunri police station on the complaint of Haji Lal Mohammad, nominating Pakistan Peoples Party MPA Nawab Taimur Talpur and Umerkot SSP Aijaz Ahmed Shaikh among others.
Sheikh's convoy was allegedly assaulted by Talpur’s associates when the PTI leader visited Kunri in Umerkot district on November 1, 2019, to attend the funeral prayers of victims of the Tezgam Express fire.
However, the Umerkot police booked Sheikh and his associates on the state's complaint. Mohammad's FIR was registered earlier this month on a local court's order.
