Landlord hacks off camel’s leg for trespassing

Chief minister orders strict action against those responsible

Our Correspondent June 16, 2024


A cruel landlord along with his employees severely tortured a camel and also chopped off its leg for entering his fields.

The 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 incident, directing authorities to ensure appropriate action against those responsible. Senior Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon said that five suspects involved in the incident have been arrested and a case has been registered against them. 

"Though, 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," Sharjeel said.

Pakistan Peoples Party, Central Information Secretary and Member of a National Assembly Shazia Atta Marri, 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 people 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.
