The committee, which was formed on the directions of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and comprised PPP leaders, includes Dr. Khatu Mal Jewan, Gayanchand Tharani, Comrade Nandlal Malhi, Shushil Malani and others. The PPP leaders had met the relatives of the alleged victims who had requested them to get the case investigated by police officials of good repute.

They had also said that the main accused, Samtra Manji, the district president of PPP Tharparkar chapter, by using her political influence, had pressured the doctors, who prepared a wrong autopsy report. Taking advantage of the post-mortem report, both the main accused had already got bails from courts. They had alleged that their relative, who was implicated on the charges of theft was first tortured at the residence of Manjani and then was subjected to inhumane torture at the police lock-up. When contacted, SSP Badin, Shahnawaz Chachar said that they would try their level best to investigate the case without any fear or favour.
