Court orders Sindh IG to personally monitor Tania murder case, ensure family’s safety


KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday directed the provincial inspector general of police to personally monitor the Tania murder case and ensure the safety of the victim’s family.

On September 9, Khan Muhammad Noohani, an influential feudal lord of the Jhangara-Bajara town near Sehwan, had barged into Tania’s family home along with armed associates and shot her dead, according to Tania’s father Ghulam Qadir Khaskheli.

The girl’s parents claimed that Khan had been pressing them to marry Tania to him, but they had turned down the proposal. They alleged that Khan had twice tried to kidnap the girl in the recent past.

Hearing the case on Tuesday, SHC Chief Justice Ahmed Ali Sheikh was apprised by the Hyderabad DIG and Jamshoro SSP that a seven-day remand of the suspects has been approved.

The police officers presented a report on the progress of the case after the SHC had taken notice of the case on Saturday. The court hearing was then adjourned until September 29.

On Monday, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Khadim Rind announced the arrest of the second prime suspect in the Tania Khaskheli murder case from Naushahro Feroze.

DIG Rind said that the accused is the nephew of infamous dacoit Ghulam Qadir Noohani, adding that he had confessed to Tania’s murder.


  1. An IG gets jobs done through various departments under him. This is just to impress upon him that Zardari is the boss. Pathetic.
