SUKKUR: Sindh United Party (SUP) president Syed Zain Shah on Thursday held Sukkur police responsible for the death of Pooja Kumari who was killed by a man at her home in Rohri town four days ago.
Talking to media persons here, Mr Shah said that family of the slain Kumari had complained to police beforehand against possible assault on the girl but police did not bother to take their complaint seriously.
“If police had taken preemptive measures, Pooja Kumrani might have not have suffered death at the hands of her tormentor because her parents had already indicated to police about the alleged killers,” he said.
“SSP Sukkur should constitute a team and investigate the matter seriously,” he said.
He said that Sindh police had become an estate police and it was least interested in serving people.
Mr Shah said that his party would field candidates in upcoming local bodies election in Sindh. “Though we are going to contest in LB election, yet we have reservations about transparency of the election,” he said.
He said that Pakistan Peoples Party had ruined all departments in Sindh, including health, education and agriculture.
“All departments have turned into dens of corruption,” said Mr Shah and added that the money earned through corruption from government departments was spent on horse-trading prior to no-confidence motion.
