MIRPURKHAS - An elderly man Jan Muhammad Jatt, resident of Panhwer Colony, has alleged that his son Shaukat Ali Jatt has robbed him of Rs14,50,000 and has also occupied his house and agricultural land in taluka Kot Ghulam Muhammad.

Speaking at a press conference along with his daughter Shamim Bano here on Thursday, he said that two months ago his son tortured and also kicked him out of the house, forcing him to take shelter with his daughter Shamim Bano.
