DERA GHAZI KHAN: A protest demonstration was held by the sympathisers and family of a youth, who was shot on January 07, 2016 and succumbed to the injuries the other day, in front of RPO Office DG Khan.

The protesters including women and children placed the body of Ghulam Mustafa outside the office and gave vent to their anger against Investigation Officer ASI Akram and SHO Police Station Derhama Ali Chaudhry.
