Manzoor Wassan’s guards open fire on flood victims

The guards of Manzoor Ahmed Wassan, the adviser to Sindh chief minister for agriculture, allegedly opened fire on the flood victims in his home district of Khairpur and left four of the flood victims injured.

The official guards of Wassan had to open fire when the affected people tried to besiege his vehicle. Sources said the guards wanted to rescue the cabinet member when protesters raised hue and cry against the alleged failure of officials to provide them relief items, including food, tents and medicines, in Karoondi area of the district. Four of the flood victims reportedly received bullets and were shifted to Nawabshah Civil Hospital in a very critical condition.
