Cash and valuables stolen in Naudero, protesters blocked highway


NAUDERO: Lawlessness is at its peak in the hometown of Bhutto leaders. Thieves entered into a shop owned by Nizamuddin Junejo on Thursday night and looted eight lakh rupees in cash and other material worth two lakhs.

On hearing the this news, entire shopkeepers of the Shahi bazaar and market came out of their business places after shutting down their shops, held a  protest demonstration at Allahwala roundabout, staged sit-in and then started marching towards sugar mill bypass where again chanted slogans against the complacency and  negligence of Naundero police.

The protestors kept the main Sukkur-Larkana highway blocked for one hour, and chanted slogans against the local police.

Later, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) general secretary of Ratodero Taluka area, Aijaz Lagharicame, Station House-Officer (SHO), Sartaj Jagirani, and Deputy Superintendent Police (DSP) Abdul Sami Vaseer arrived there and persuaded the protesters to call off their road blockade.

After the initial refusal, a three days’ time was given to the police to recover not only the stolen cash & material of Junejo but all thefts which have taken place during the posting of both the police officers in Naundero.

The protest rally was led by trader’s leader Abdul Khalique Bhutto, municipality vice chairman Sikander Ali Katpar, Khalid Memon, Comrade Hussain Bux Narejo, Ghulam Mustafa Narejo and others.

They warned the police to block all roads leading to Garhi Khuda Bux on 27th December, in case the stolen things are not recovered within the stipulated time of 3 days.
