Naudero: The residents, including men and women of Kehar village blocked main Sukkur-Larkana Highway near their village by burning bushes and held protest since early Friday morning from 7am against whisking away two brothers Ghulam Qambar and Akbar Ali by cops in the wee hours.

The road remained closed for both side traffic for five hours but no police officer either of Mahotta or Naudero Police Stations reached to rescue the stuck up people, which also included patients, attendants of those whose near and dear ones were admitted in Chandka and Shaikh Zayed Hospital for Women and others. They kept of requesting the protesters to leave them so that patients should not suffer but nobody listened to them.

The villagers including Gulan Khatoon, Fatima, Arbab Khatoon, Shabiran, Galib Kehar, Wazir Gad, Khurshid, Wazir and others alleged that they are not being informed as to which police has taken away their two people, which has forced them to close down the road since morning adding it will be opened when arrest of two men is declared.

They said that if there was anything against the two young men then police could have arrested them during the day but they entered in their Otaq like dacoits and forcibly took the two men.

Even this Scribe sent messages to SSP and DIGP Larkana but all in vain. Finally SHO Mahotta Aijaz Magsi and DSP Yousif Brohi held talks with the agitators who agreed to go to SSP office to know the whereabouts of their men. After five hours traffic returned to normalcy and road was opened but they warned that if their men were not released, they will again shut the road.
