Karachi: Four Hindu doctors were gunned down today in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province, sparking fears and panic among the minority community. The doctors were gunned down in their clinic in Chak town close to Shikarpur.

Dr Ramesh Kumar, a former member of provincial assembly and chief patron of Pakistan Hindu Council, confirmed that Dr Ashok, Dr Naresh, Dr Ajeet and Dr Satia Paul were killed by armed assailants while working in their clinic.

“This is not the first time such an incident has taken place where members of our community have been targeted. What is of concern is that the law enforcement agencies tend to support the criminals involved in such acts,” Dr Kumar told PTI.

“There is a strong population of around 50,000 Hindus in Chak so for such an incident to happen is bad and the government must take notice of it and provide protection to the minorities,” Kumar demanded.

Police said they had arrested two of the people involved in the killings.

A police official confirmed that the killings could have been the result of a dispute between some Hindus and the local Bhaya Baradari that too place two weeks back over a Hindu girl.

Kumar said minorities were well protected and secure military strongman Pervez Musharraf was the president but now they had become prey to open terrorism and crime. (PTI)
