HYDERABAD: An old woman appealed to authorities on Thursday to award exemplary punishment to the people who allegedly tortured her son to death after a dispute over a small loan.
Zarina Khoso of Mitho Khoso village, Sanghar district, said at a news conference at the press club that her son Ghulam Rasool Khoso, 25, owed the accused Rs6,000 out of which he had already paid Rs4,000 and would have paid back the rest of the amount had they left him alive.
She said that her son accompanied one Shahnawaz Khoso to the Otaq of Babar Khoso, her son-in-law, where he was subjected to torture after having been forced to drink huge quantity of liquor.
Later, Babar, Shahnawaz and Khadim took her son to the house of her another son-in-law, Qadir Bux Khoso, in Tando Adam and she was present there when his son was brought there, Ms Zarina said. She said that she screamed and wailed for help and asked Babar and his friends to take him to A hospital but they abandoned him there. She, with her other son, Ali Hassan and relatives, Abdul Ghafoor and Nazar Mohammad, she tried to take him to a hospital but by then he had died, she said.
She said that police had arrested Khadim Hussain and Shahnawaz after she registered an FIR at Tando Adam police station against Babar, Khadim Hussain and Shahnawaz.
She complained that police were supporting the accused and let the third accused Babar move about freely. He was threatening her family with dire consequences, she said. She was accompanied by her other son Ali Hassan and late Rasool Bux’s wife, Umraozadi.
