Karachi, Mar.4 (ANI): Sudden increase in violent activities and abduction has forced several Dalit families in Sindh province's Tharparkar District to shift to safer places.
As many as 65 Dalit families have reportedly left their village in Aakle region of the district and shifted to Mithi town and other adjacent areas.
Incidents of kidnapping for ransom has increased drastically in the region in the recent past.
In one such incident, a fifteen years old girl, Daya, belonging to the Meghwar Dalit community was abducted from her house located in Samaro at night while her family members were sleeping.
Daya's family have received threats from the abductors for kidnapping their other daughters if they try to launch any complain against them, The Nation reports.
The troubled family has not only approached security officials, but they have narrated their plight to local leader Faqir Sher Mohd Bilalani, but nothing has changed.
Daya's mother Ratna said she had contacted Faqir several times but he only gave her assurances to recover her young girl but so far nothing has been done in this regard.
Ratna said she has not lodged any FIR against the kidnappers fearing retaliation, but she can identify the kidnappers.
Daya's family members have demanded immediate action from the government, which seems to have turned a blind eye towards the problems of the masses, especially the minorities.
They have also appealed to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and the Sindh High Court to take a suo motu notice of the abduction of their daughter and lawlessness in the province. (ANI)
