Demo held against abduction of three students


Villagers and the heirs of three abducted students held a protest demonstration and sit-in on Sukkur-Larkana Road at Agani village here on Sunday morning. According to details, the three boys were kidnapped 12 days ago from Agani village in the limits of Mahotta Police Station. Two of them were sons of primary teachers.
During the protest, the villagers chanted slogans against police and Larkana administration. The kidnapped boys included 23-years-old Azhar, son of primary schoolteacher Abdul Ghafoor Kehar, 20-years-old Majid, son of Lutuf Ali Kehar and 22-years-old Suhail, son junior schoolteacher Ahmed Bux Bhutto.
Irshad Khatoon, mother of Suhail, told media persons that their sons had gone to Larkana to deliver a gift of guava fruits to a relative. They were kidnapped by unknown armed men on their way back, she said.
The mothers of the abducted students said that after hectic efforts of 10 days, Larkana SSP Jawaid Jiskani finally met them and listen to their woes. However, he rebuked them and said that they were joking, they added. The women said that no police station had so far registered the abduction case, which showed how the police treated the people of Larkana district, especially villagers. Villagers and parents including Zamir Agani, Aijaz Agani, Ahmed Bux, Abdul Ghafoor and others said that Larkana SSP met them after ten days in his office but did not listen to their grievance. They complained that about 0.1million agricultural labourers worked in the guava orchids of the area and all of them headed back home before sunset due to insecurity. They said that even transporters did not stay in area after sunset due to the presence of bandits and criminals. The road blockade was lifted after three hours when Larkana ASP Headquarter Nadim visited the area and held talks with the agitating people. He assured the protestors that he would recover the missing boys within three days.
