The PPP leaders assured the family that they would try their best to support them in getting justice. Jay Kumar, the complainant of the case and other relatives deplored that not only police officials made inordinate delay in the registration of the murder FIR against PPP leader (president of ladies wing in Tharparkar) Samtra Manjani, SHO Mithi Police Station Mohammad Soomar Mangrio and other influential figures but also showed serious apprehensions on the initial postmortem report. They alleged that Manjani was directly involved in the arrest of the victim and the brutal torture he faced during detention at Mithi Police Station. They said that police had arrested and tortured him at the behest of Manjani on a false charge of theft and demanded a fresh inquiry into the incident.
