In a tragic turn of events, a young maid named Fatima lost her life under certain circumstances in a Haveli, the so-called ‘holy mansion’ of Pir of Ranipur, located near Khairpur, Sindh. The incident has shocked the local community and raised questions about the pursuit of justice. Despite the arrest of an alleged culprit, the path to justice appears uncertain.


Fatima, a 10-year-old innocent girl, worked as a maid servant in the Haveli of Pir Asad Shah Jilani of Ranipur. On the fateful day of her demise, her life was abruptly cut short, leaving behind a grieving family and a community searching for answers. The circumstances surrounding her death remain shrouded in mystery, intensifying the need for a thorough investigation.

CCTV Footage

After the crime occurred, a crucial piece of evidence emerged in the form of CCTV footage. This footage became a vital tool in the investigation, providing valuable insights into the events leading up to Fatima’s untimely demise. The video was widely circulated on social media platforms, triggering public outrage and mounting pressure on the authorities to take swift action.

Public Outcry and Police Response

The release of the CCTV footage sparked a wave of public outcry, with citizens demanding justice for Fatima. The video depicted a series of distressing events, suggesting the involvement of an individual in Fatima’s death. In response to the public’s outcry, the police were compelled to take immediate action.

Arrest of the Alleged Culprit

Following the public uproar, the police launched an intensive investigation that led to the arrest of an alleged culprit. The individual in question was subsequently sent behind bars, awaiting trial. The SHO and a doctor have also been taken into custody. The arrests gave some semblance of hope to Fatima’s family and the community, who believed that justice was finally within reach.

The Pursuit of Justice

While the arrest of the alleged culprit offered a glimmer of hope, the pursuit of justice remains mired in uncertainty. The path to justice is often fraught with challenges, such as legal complexities, potential corruption, and delays in the judicial process. Fatima’s family and the community are left grappling with the fear that justice may elude them.

The Importance of a Fair Trial

For justice to prevail, it is imperative that a fair trial is conducted. This includes a thorough investigation, unbiased legal proceedings, and a transparent judicial process. The judiciary must ensure that all evidence is scrutinized meticulously, allowing for a just and impartial verdict.

Community Support and Advocacy

In the wake of Fatima’s tragic death, the local community has rallied together in support of her family, demanding justice and accountability. Activists, human rights organizations, and concerned citizens have taken up the cause, raising awareness and advocating for a fair trial. Their efforts are crucial in keeping this case in the public eye and urging the authorities to stay committed to delivering justice.

It is imperative that the legal system ensures a fair trial, where all evidence is meticulously examined, and the truth be found.  Sindh has plunged in lawlessness and misrule which has no ending. It seems there is no law at all. The vocal class urges to the honorable Supreme Court to intervene and get the innocent children rid of this postmodern slavery. We people need to rethink that these wrong numbers have brought wrath upon Sindh. Let’s pledge to unchain their servitude physically and mentally!
