THATTA: A large number of people belonging to the Mallah tribe and members of the Mallah Ithad stage sit in near a section of National Highway against the murder of a youth Riaz Malah.
According to the information gathered by this correspondent, three unidentified men gunned down Riaz Malah 25, near the shrine of renowned saint Shah Ganj located in the outskirts of Thatta city late Friday night.
The annoyed protesters chanted slogans against police and other concerned authorities on their failure to dispense law and order in the district leading to a surge in crimes.
They placed the dead body on the road causing suspension of traffic for around three hours on both sides of the road.
The concerned police officials persuaded them to end the protest and disperse but they refused to do so until a suspect identified as Ameer Kumbhar was arrested by Thatta police. SSP Thatta when contacted told local reporters that the hunt was on to arrest remaining suspects. He further said that a fair and transparent investigation would be made into the matter.
