Karachi: The Sindh Assembly was informed on Tuesday that the Kamber-Shahdadkot district police had been detaining six women and two infants for the last 10 days illegally. MQM’s Zareen Majeed, on a point of order, said that the Naseerabad police had raided Bityun village near Wagan town and detained six women along with two infants.
Drawing attention of the House towards this glaring violation of human rights, the legislator said that the women’s only fault was that they happened to be distant relatives of an alleged criminal there and resided in the same village. The Kamber district police, instead of arresting the alleged criminal, had been detaining innocent people. Ms Majeed said that a report on this incident be presented before the House.
