WEB DESK: Chairperson Pakistan People’s Party Shaheed Bhutto (PPP-SB), Ghanwa Bhutto said that after Pakistan Protection Ordinance, as many as 700 innocent people had been killed by the police in fake encounters and their relatives could not get the justice so far. She said this while speaking on the occasion of Meet-the-Press held at Hyderabad Press Club on Thursday.
Besides, the trend of half-fry and full-fry is rising in the Sindh province where the innocent people are being abducted by the police and killed them in fake encounters, she said while expressing serious concerns over the issue. It is not duty of police to kill anybody whoever he is, he should be produced in the court and the court would decide whether he is guilty or innocent, she said.
Citing the example of her party worker, brother of Arshad Khaskhely was picked up by the police and later killed in fake encounter by the police and Arshad Khaskhely was implicated in murder case of his own brother, she said allegedly. PPP-led by Zardari is not original party and it is fake leadership and misguiding the people and PPP-SB is original party but its leadership is being victimised where the original party and leadership could not work as it should, she said. Later, she made a visit to house of renowned scholar Ibrahim Joyo.
