Court rejects bail plea of PPP MPA in triple murder case

DADU   -   The Model Criminal Trial Court of Dadu on Saturday dismissed the bail plea of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MPA Sardar Burhan Khan Chandio and another accused Zulfiqar Chandio in Mehar triple murder case. The two brothers along with five other suspects, identified as Ali Gohar, Sattar, Sikandar, Murtaza and Zulfiqar, were nominated as accused in the triple murder of Raees Karamullah Chandio, his two sons, Mukhtiar Chandio and Mukhtiar Chandi. In an earlier hearing, the trial court had decided to indict two accused MPAs Sardar Ahmed Chandio and Burhan Chandio in the murder case. On September 17, a bench of the Supreme Court had ordered the police to arrest absconding accused in Mehar triple murder case within a week. Umme Rubab’s father Mukhtiar Chandio, grandfather Karamullah Chandio and paternal uncle Kabil Chandio were gunned down on Jan 17, 2018, within the remit of Faridabad police station, Mehar taluka of Dadu district. Umm-e-Rubab is pursuing the case of her slain family members by herself. The case was highlighted last year when a video of a barefooted Umm-e-Rubab walking out from the court went viral on social media.
