Civil society protests Lyari student’s murder

A large number of civil society activists including students staged a protest demonstration before the Karachi Press Club here on Sunday and demanded immediate arrest of killers of Jamal Qadri, a BCom student belonging to Lyari.

The protestors said armed bandits targeted two twin brothers Jamal Qadri and Haider Qadri, sons of Dr Abdul Ghafoor Qadri of Lyari General Hospital, on January 2 while they were going to Karachi University from their house at Agra-Taj Colony. Jamal Qadri died on the spot while Haider Qadri sustained serious injuries and still fighting for life in a local hospital.

Students Action Committee leader Syed Abdul Rasheed, Human Rights Network chairman Intikhab Alam Soori, and other civil society leaders in their speeches said that today (Jan 27) was the birthday of slain Jamal Qadri.

They said the Supreme Court had taken notice of the murder of a posh area resident Shahbez, and it should also take notice of the murder of Jamal Qadri, a resident of poor slum area so that erroneous notion that law is there for the rich only could be proved wrong.

They gave the government ultimatum of three days to arrest the killers of Qadri and warned to take to streets along with the whole youth of the area if the government ignored their demand.
