Staff Reporter

Family of a young man, Nazim Jokhio, who was tortured to death inside a PPP leader’s Malir farmhouse, staged a protest demonstration against his murder on the National Highway on Thursday.

They blocked the highway by placing the victim’s body, suspending all kinds of vehicular movement.

The protesters demanded that those behind Jokhio’s murder be brought to justice. Nazim Jokhio was allegedly killed by influential personalities after he recorded a video of their guests hunting endangered species of birds in his village.

The tortured body of Jokhio was found at the Jam House, a farmhouse owned by PPP MPA Jam Awais, according to the Memon Goth police.

After the incident came to the fore, Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah took notice of the matter and directed the police to lodge an FIR on the complaint of the bereaved family.
