TANDO ADAM: One left dead and two wounded in alleged presence of police on Wednesday, all three persons were targeted in Jatia Mohla of Tando Adam Town of district Sanghar because one of them was suspected to be in questionable condition with a girl.

Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, by taking notice of the incident, ordered a report from police officials.

According to details, Faraz Qureshi along with a girl arrived at a premise of Wali Muhammad Burriro.

Neighbours locked them from outside and informed the police. But before the police could arrive, Qureshi called owner of the premise, who along with three others reached the spot.

This led to a squabble between owners of the house, Burriro, his two relatives, one friend Iqbal Qureshi with the area people. They all were beaten up, resultantly Ghulam Sarwar Burriro died on the spot, while Iqbal Qureshi and Mithu Burriro were referred to LUMS in critical condition.

Area people said that this incident is inhuman and it has revisited the Sialkot lynching incident, in which two brothers were killed.

After the incident flashed on number of TV channels, the chief minister Sindh took notice of the issue and he called the report from concerned police officials. He has appointed DIG Mirpurkhas Ghulam Haider Jamali the inquiry officer.


Meanwhile, various politician and right activists have condemned the act and called it brutality.

Advisor to the CM Sindh, Sharmila Farooqui told DawnNews that it was an inhuman act and said that responsible police officials and people involved in lynching will be brought to book.

She said that those who are responsible will be awarded exemplary punishment, so people may not muster-up courage to commit such offences.

Burfat Fateh, a professor of sociology in University of Karachi, said that when institutions turn weaker, and people lose their hopes and faith in the institutions and the state, then they look to decide issues on the roads.

Fateh said that due to continuous problems confronted by the people, they have zero tolerance. He commented that the law has become a cage for the weak and poor people.

Farzana Bari, a human rights activist, commented that some say that they want to save religion, some say they want to save morality and some say they want to save society, but they all are killing human being to save all these in the country.

“In fact it is not their job, it is the job of the state….but here because the role of state is of a mere silent spectator, therefore such incidents are revisiting the society.

No case was registered till filing of this report. However, Tando Adam police has arrested Faraz Qureshi and Wali Muhammad Burriro.
