Pakistan: People protest in Thari over murder of domestic help

Thari, Pakistan: A large number of workers and civil society activists belonging to Pakistan's Thari region held a protest on Sunday to demand justice over the murder of young domestic worker in Karachi city earlier this month.

During the Thar Mazdoor Ittehad’s demonstration outside the Karachi Press Club, the agitators demanded that the Sindh government and the police arrest the killers of Shahid Rahimoon, who was killed at a vacant bungalow in the upmarket DHA neighbourhood’s Khayaban-e-Bukhari area, The News International reported.

They also demanded conducting a thorough investigation to ascertain the motive behind the murder, and criticised the police for failing to arrest the killers despite the passage of several weeks, the newspaper reported.

Meanwhile, the country's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi also spoke to the protesters via phone to assure them that he would take up the issue with Sindh’s police chief and chief secretary as well as other officials of the provincial government.

“I have centuries-old relations with Thar’s residents, and particularly with the Rahimoon community, so I won’t abandon them in such a difficult time,” Qureshi, who is also the spiritual leader of the Ghousia Jamaat, was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
