waqar | 10 years ago | Reply in my opinion its a so panic to the area of Hali Road, that only 20 or 30 unknown persons create a group and harassing the people of Hali Road near Sabzi Mandi. also its notice that law enforcement failed to maintained the law & order situation. it also comes to light that local political party support these type of elements. i am humbly request first of all to District Police Officer, Hyderabad, DIGP Hyderabad Zone to kindly take strict action against the culprits involved in above incident, and after that i again request to local political parties to please do not support these type of GUNDAS. may be you all known are not. but i also told you all that the Eid, which is biggest occasion of all Muslims, the area of Hali Road, celebrate this Eid in totally harassment. i therefore request to all of over leaders & incharge of Law enforcement agency to please take appropriate action against those social evils so the area of Hali Road will be peace full in future.
