KARACHI: Sindh Caretaker Chief Minister Justice (retd) Maqbool Baqar on Friday ordered an inquiry into the killing of four villagers in Sakrand and summoned a report on the incident.

The interim chief minister expressed sorrow and regret over the incident while addressing the media after attending an event in connection with 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal at New Memon Mosque.

The chief minister said he met with interim Sindh Home Minister Haris Nawaz to discuss the incident. He said such incidents are painful and should not take place. CM Sindh said he had formed a three-member committee to conduct an inquiry into the incident and directed them to report their findings within four days.

An order issued by the Sindh Home Department said the inquiry committee would be headed by Hyderabad Commissioner Khalid Hyder Shah and included the Shaheed Benazirabad DIG and Karachi DIG Special Branch. The committee would investigate the matter to “determine the reasons for this clash resulting in loss of precious lives and injuries to law enforcement personnel.”

A day earlier, security forces raided a village in Sakrand to arrest militants belonging to the proscribed outfit Sindhudesh Revolutionary Army. Four people were killed and nine others were wounded.

However, Sindh United Party Secretary-General Roshan Burriro claimed that those killed were supporters of his party and were shot by security forces. After the incident, the villagers took to the streets and staged a sit-in on a section of the National Highway carrying the coffins of the deceased.

SUP president Zain Shah termed the incident “a gift of caretaker government” which he said the people of Sindh would not accept. He accused the Pakistan Peoples Party of taking vindictive actions before general elections and said that unarmed voters of SUP were targeted by police. He urged the Supreme Court to take notice of the incident and order a judicial inquiry.
