SHERGARH - As the annual Urs of Hazrat Daud Bandgi Kirmani draws near, the incident of crime has suddenly risen in the area with the people holding the newly posted Shergarh Police SHO responsible for the entire situation.
Last week, two major protest demonstrations have already been held against the police by Rickshaw union and Anjuman Tajran, alleging that Shergarh Police SHo Khaliq Riaz was patronizing extortionists. They said the last year’s Urs also witnessed widespread vulgarity under the cover of ‘variety shows’ crime and extortions due to the posting of the same SHO ‘who had now got himself posted again ahead of Urs to earn Mela’. Various social and religious organizations including Anjuman Tajran, Pakistan Kissan Ittehad, Human Rights Welfare Organization, Jamaat Ahle Sunnat and Labiak Ya Rasullallah Tehreek have expressed deep concern over the posting of the ‘corrupt’ SHO and demanded Sahiwal RPO and Okara DPO replace him with some conscientious officer so that the annual Urs event remains peaceful. The 5-day Urs of Syed Muhammad Ibrahim popularly known as Hazrat Daud Bandagi Kirmani is due to start on March 13.
