PPP Senator Krishna Kumari Kohli has demanded the killers of Pooja Kumari Oad be given death penalty.
Krishna Kumari visited the house of Pooja Kumari in village Hazaro Jatio near Rohri in Sukkur district on Tuesday. She met the victim’s parents — Sahib Oad and Rabia Oad.
Talking to the media, she said that on March 21, the 18-year-old Hindu girl was shot in the dead with a pistol allegedly by Wahid Bakhsh Lashari, Haji Raees and an unknown person, when she resisted her
kidnapping.
Kohli further said that the SSP Sukkur district, Sanghar Malik, has assured her that Pooja’s killers will be arrested at the earliest.
Sahib and Rabia told the media that they had submitted an application with SHO Rohri Police for Pooja’s protection about 15 days before her brutal murder. But, they
said, SHO Bashir Ahmed Jagirani took it lightly.
