NAWABSHAH: A landlord allegedly chopped off a camel’s leg as punishment for foraging into his field for fodder in Mund Jamrao village in Sanghar district on Friday.

Sanghar SSP took notice of the news, which was widely circulated on social media, and contacted owner of the brutalised camel, Soomar Behan, who was a poor peasant.

Police officials said the peasant had refused to identify the culprit and press charges against him, hence police lodged an FIR on behalf of the state against unknown persons under sections 429 and 34 PPC.
