Police remained silent spectator.
Later, on the complaint of Mumtaz Arisar the police registered a case against 32 people, including the district nazim. DEMO Labourers working at brick kiln staged a demonstration outside the press club in Umerkot on Monday to protest against non-payment of their wages.
