Sindhi tribesmen demand arrest of PPP lawmaker over triple murder


ISLAMABAD: The tribesmen of Sindh’s Mehar area on Tuesday staged a protest and demanded the arrest of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MPA Nawab Sardar Ahmed Chandio for killing three members of a family over an old land dispute.

The family of the deceased said that three of their people were killed on the orders of Sardar Chandio and demanded his arrest. They staged a protest outside the press club and asked the Supreme Court and chief justice to take notice of the matter.

The protesters tried to meet Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Khursheed Shah, who was also present at the press club, but the PPP leaders’ security did not let them through.

On January 17, armed assailants had attacked the house of Raees Karamullah Chandio, the chairman of Baldai union council, killing him and his two sons, Mukhtiar and Qabil (a district council member).

Chandio, his sibling Nawab Burhan Chandio and five other suspects were booked for their alleged involvement in the deadly incident, however, the MPA and his brother’s names were later struck down from the FIR citing a lack of evidence.
