Karachi, Sep.9 (ANI): Dozens of Hindus protested outside the Karachi Press Club demanding the safe return of a Hindu nurse, Bano, who went missing nearly three weeks ago.

People belonging to Maheshwari community protested outside the club carrying placards and banners and shouting slogans blaming police for Bano's mysterious disappearance.

"Though the police have registered a case, nothing has been done for her return so far," they said.

The elders of the community feared that Bano, who worked in a private hospital, might have been killed or forced to convert her religion.

One of the elders, Narain told the media persons that Bano had an altercation with the hospital administration just before she disappeared.

Angry agitators demanded that the government and concerned authorities ensure the safe release and return of Bano.

Forced conversion of Hindu women is not a new phenomenon in Sindh province as several such cases have been reported across the region in the past too, The Daily Times reported. (ANI)
