NOUSHEHRO FEROZE: A Wadera who held a Jirga previous day and ordered two brothers to bite their shoes was booked by the local police but not in the crime to hold an illegal jirga, local sources told PPI here Friday.
The sources said that a local Wadera and leader of ruling Pakistan Peoples´ Party (PPP) Muhammad Bux Mubejo was arrested by the police and a FIR lodged against him, but surprisingly the police did not mention the holding of illegal jirga in the FIR.
The sources further said the leaders of the ruling PPP and local police officers are trying their best to save the skin of the local PPP leader and they are trying to push up the matter of illegal Jirga. However, the fact was that an illegal Jirga had punished two real brothers to hold their shoes with their teeth because their donkey cart had collided with the vehcile of the Jirga head.
The local Wadera and leader of ruling Pakistan Peoples´ Party (PPP) Muhammad Bux Mubejo had held a Jirga headed by himself at his bungalow at Village Phul and ordered two brothers whose donkey cart had collided with his car to carry their shoes with their teeth in the presence of hundreds of villagers.
Both brothers, Suhail and Ayaz, who are manual farm labors by profession, obeyed the order of the Jirga, took their shoes with their teeth and apologized with the Wadera for their mistake. The footage of this inhuman Jirga has gone viral and social and political circles have strongly condemned the PPP leader for his inhuman attitude.
However, the City police last night arrested Wadera Muhammad Bux, lodged an FIR against him on the complaint of the State and produced him before a local court on Friday. The court of the first civil judge Abdul Hafeez Chachar rejected the bail plea of Wadera Muhammad Bux and sent him to jail on 14-day remand.
Meanwhile, the victimized brothers and their relatives in a press conference here alleged the local police are taking sides with the Wadera. They said they went to the police station last night but the police refused to lodge their FIR and later lodged a FIR on behalf of the State in which the crime of holding illegal Jirga was not included to save the skin of local PPP leader. They appealed to the higher authorities to dole out justice to them. – PPI
