Sukkur: Triple murder: 7 remanded in custody
SUKKUR: The seven accused, three brothers among them, who were nominated in the FIR of the murder of three Hindu doctors in Chak village of Shikarpur district on Monday, were produced by the police in an anti-terrorism court in Jacobabad on Thursday amid tight security.
Judge Abdul Rasheed Soomro remanded the accused – three brothers Ahsanullah, Naeemullah and Ubaidullah, Abdul Ghani, Abdul Rauf, Mohammad Aslam and Abdul Latif – in police custody for seven days. All accused belong to the Bhayo caste
Talking to media outside the court room, accused Ahsanullah said “we are not involved in the killing of Ajeet Kumar, Naresh Kumar and Ashok Kumar”.
He said the killings were a reaction to “sexual assault” on a girl of the Bhayo caste, alleging that the girl was still in the custody of the Hindu community.
He said police had arrested some women belonging to Bhayo community, terming it highhandedness. Shikarpur police have also registered a case of possession of unlicensed arms against the seven accused.
