News Desk June 18, 2024


A troubling incident emerged involving a donkey whose ears were reportedly cut off over a land dispute in Rawalpindi.

The incident, which occurred on June 4, was brought to attention by the donkey owner Tanveer.

Tanveer accused Arshad Mehmood of being responsible for mutilating the donkey.

Tanveer has been persistent in seeking justice for the donkey, but he expressed frustration as he continues to visit the police station for the case to be formally registered.

The police, on their part, have stated that they are actively investigating the matter. They mentioned that there are also ongoing disputes over land between Tanveer and Arshad Mehmood.

The case has caused concern among local residents and animal rights activists, who are urging swift action to ensure justice for the donkey.

In a similar 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.
