Ppi July 10, 2010

SHIKARPUR: Two SHOs of Golodaro and Ghulam Shah police stations in Garhi Yaseen Town have been suspended following a deadly clash that left 22 people dead on Thursday.

Larkana DIG Operations Dr Sanaullah Abbasi took action against the police officers on the complaints of the victims’ families, belonging to the Magsi and Qambrani tribes.

According to Abbasi, he suspended SHO Golodaro Mir Hassan Jakhrani for his alleged support for the Qambranis during the armed clash in Pathan Wah area. Jakhrani has been on the run since the day of the clash and the police have yet to arrest him.

SHO Ghulam Shah Abdul Wahab Rind was suspended and punished by being kept under quarter-guard for helping Jakhrani escape from the police station instead of arresting the culprits, the DIG said.

Abbasi received complaints from Magsi tribesmen that Jakhrani had killed three people of the Magsi tribe and he was also involved in providing illegal support to the Qambranis after their encounter with the Magsi tribesmen.

An inquiry will be conducted against both the suspended police officers and Jakhrani will be arrested, assured Abbasi.

On the other hand, DPO Shikarpur Faizullah Korejo failed to confirm the action taken against the SHOs by DIG Larkana, saying that he was unaware of any such orders.

Meanwhile, workers of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan staged a demonstration in Moro against the killing of 22 people in the tribal feud in Shikarpur.

The demonstration was led by Pir Nazir Ahmed Shah, Ali Sher Depaer, Zahoor Hussain Khoso, Javaid Mustafa, Muhammad Sharif Korejo, Qalander Buksh Chandio and Abbas Chandio, who appealed to the authorities to stop the bloodshed.
