The Muttahida Qaumi Movement Rabita Committee has strongly condemned extortionists for harassing owners of schools and marble factories in SITE, Metroville and Manghopir areas.
In a statement, they deplored that extortionists have now turned to schools owners and teachers. Recently, they brutally killed a school principal and his son. “It is deplorable no action was taken against the killers,” they said.
“Two days ago they killed a marble trader in Manghopir when he refused to pay them extortion money. Traders and schools are receiving extortion slips. People who refuse to pay them are being killed.
The situation has forced teachers and school owners along with the traders to stage protest demonstrations, “they said.
“There is a deep anxiety among traders, business owners, school owners, teachers, students and citizens over the prevailing situation, “they said.
The MQM demanded that Sindh chief minister, Rangers director general, and inspector general should take actions against the elements who are involved in extortion. They expressed solidarity with the marble traders, school owners and teachers.
