Protestors charged for terrorism during PM Shehbaz’s visit to Sukkur

Sukkur police claimed to have filed a first information report (FIR) on terrorism charges against over 100 unnamed individuals for allegedly attacking police officers.

On Friday, FIR was registered during the visit of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto for throwing stones at vehicles, causing damage to both public and private property, and inciting flood victims outside a relief camp.

PM Shehbaz Sharif visited the Sukkur district to inspect the flood situation and spoke with displaced people in relief camps alongside Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, and other politicians.

Rain-affected families from various locations blocked certain roads during his visit to a camp put up close to BA College to protest the administration’s failure to drain out stagnant waters.

According to a police spokesperson, certain rioters including women blocked the main road while authorities were performing their duties outside the camp.

He said that rioters also broke car windshields, which caused traffic to be delayed for eight hours disrupting law and order and inciting flood-affected families against the officials.

The spokesman stated, “We have filed a complaint under the Anti-Terrorism Act against the miscreants, and action will be done against them in accordance with the law.”

He issued a warning that no one would be allowed to take the law into their hands and disturb peace during this sensitive time.
