In a shocking incident in Sanghar, Sindh, a brutal landlord, accompanied by his employees, severely tortured a camel before amputating its leg with a sharp tool after it entered his fields.

A video of the incident went viral on social media, showing the camel in agony and crying. The owner of the camel protested vehemently at the Sanghar Press Club, holding the severed leg.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah took notice of the brutal incident, directing authorities to ensure swift justice and appropriate action against those responsible.

Senior Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon announced that a case had been registered against the culprits, resulting in the arrest of five individuals. “The matter had been settled between the camel owner and the accused, but this act is inhuman and unacceptable, which is why the case was registered on behalf of the state,” Memon said.

Shazia Atta Marri, Central Information Secretary of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and a member of the National Assembly, also took notice of the incident, prompting the district administration to take action.

Following Marri’s intervention, Sanghar Deputy Commissioner Imran Hassan Khawaja dispatched medical teams to treat the injured camel.

The influential individuals responsible for mutilating the camel were reportedly shielded by Mangli police, who registered the case on behalf of the police instead of the camel's owner.
