Karachi (May 02, 2018): Sindh High Court Chief Justice Ahmed Ali Sheikh has taken notice of minor Saima’s alleged murder after rape in Larkana.
The chief justice took the notice following the reports of the case in the media.
The SHC top judge has also summoned a report from Larkana District and Sessions judge over the matter.
The court has summoned Deputy Inspector General Larkana Ferozuddin Siddiqui and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Larkana Tanveer Hussain Tunio to appear in person on May 7.Earlier in the day, the police said that the prime suspect involved in the case has been arrested. The police had arrested two suspects, of which one confessed to his crime.
Saima’s family, who reside in Ayub Colony, had shared that she had left her house on April 24 to buy confectionaries for herself however she never returned. Next day, her body was recovered from the drain.
The body was moved to Chandka Medical Hospital but the post-mortem was conducted six hours later due to non-availability of the doctors, the victim’s father had claimed.
Saima Jarwar, 9, the daughter of Naseem Jarwar in Larkana, was abducted and brutally killed by some unknown demons on April 24. In the absence of rigorous policies and laws, such inhumane incidents are increasing unchecked.Earlier on April 30, civil society, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), poets, researchers, nationalists and clerics on Sunday held a protest and demanded justice for Saima Jarwar over her rape and murder.
The agitators included Jarwar community headed by their chief Sardar Ali Jarwar, members of Sindhi Adabi Sangat, Rawadari Tehreek, Fisher Folk Forum, Pakistan Peoples Party Shaheed Bhutto (PPPSB), Awami Workers Party, PPP-Workers, Sindh Taraqi Pasand Party, Sunni Tehreek, Jafferia Students Organisation, Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz, Saqafati Tanzeem.
The parties staged a sit-in at Jinnah Bagh and demanded to arrest the culprit(s) as soon as possible.“Saima’s murder is the murder of entire humanity,” the protesters said.
They said that lawlessness prevails over Sindh where minors were being assaulted but rulers have been asleep.
Naseem Jarwar, father of Saima, denounced the postmortem report and said that it was fabricated ‘intentionally’ to protect an influential person. He alleged that DNA tests have not been conducted yet.
