MITHI: The relatives of the murdered Dodo Bheel and others who were injured by the security guards of the mining firm were given the compensation cheques by PPP lawmakers in Malani House on Saturday.
The ‘ceremony’ of cheque distribution was held in Malani House in Mithi where the relatives of Dodo Bheel were given the cheque of Rs 10 million while two injured Ghulam Qadir Khokhr and Moro Bheel were given the cheques of Rs 5 million each as was announced by Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Ahmed Sheikh soon after the tragic incident in July this year.
The credible sources revealed that the amount announced by Mr Sheikh was transferred in the account of DC Tharparkar a few weeks back and relatives of the barbaric incident refused to get the cheques from the DC office but later they were ‘convinced’ by PPP leaders to get the cheques during the ‘ceremony’ held in Malani House. PPP MNA Dr Meheh Kumar Malani, MPA Sher Mohammad Bilalani, Engineer Gayanchand, MPA Rana Hamir Singh, Dost Mohammad Rahimoon, Nandlal Malhi, Poonjo Bheel, Shushil Malani and PPP leaders attended the event. The PPP leaders instead of bothering to go to the villages of the victims called their relatives to gather at Malani House to collect the cheques.
When contacted DC Tharprkar Mohammad Nawaz Soho confirmed that cheques were given to the family of Dodo Bheel and two other torture victims at Malani House.” ” Dr Malani and PPP lawmakers and leaders tried their best for the adequate compensation to the family members of the murdered workers and two injured coworkers” he added.
