Protest for arrest of murder accused

Scores of people hailing from different walks of life converged on the main road of Sujawal town to stage a protest against the lax attitude of Station House Officer of Sujawal Police Station Ayaz Ali Memon in the Sadaq Rasool murder case and demanded the arrest of the influential accused in the cold-blooded murder.

They accused SHO of sabotaging a transparent probe into the matter at the behest of highly influential businessman Haji Abdul Majeed Memon whose both sons – Ghulam Nabi Memon and Shahnawaz Memon – along with their employees have been booked in the FIR lodged by the sister of the deceased Advocate Kanwal Sheikh under section 302, 109 and 34 of Pakistan Penal code 1860 late Thursday night. It is pertinent to mention here that petrol pump manager Sadaq Rasool Sheikh, 22, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the meeting area of his office at the petrol pump on the evening of 6th August and police recovered a repeater gun, annunciation, blood-stained bed sheet from the crime scene.

While talking to this correspondent, Advocate Kanwal Sheikh said that the investigation had been handed over to SI Mushtaq Ahmed Panhwer but she feared that he would blindly toe the nail of influential suspects. “I, Advocate Ayaz Ali Khowaja, and head of Shaheri Etihad Nisar Memon have moved an application to DIG Hyderabad for transfer of investigation to any honest and dignified officer as they have lost control over the local police officers”; she revealed and said that SHO was not ready to lodge FIR instantly following which the process of investigation delayed.

On the other hand, Sujawal Bar Association and Hyderabad Bar Association condemned the ill-treatment meted out by Sujawal SHO to the female Advocates and demanded a transparent investigation into the matter. However, two accused in the case obtained protective Bail from Sindh High Court in the case on Friday.
