Probe reveals truth behind Karo-Kari death

KHAIRPUR: Investigation into the death of one Agha Khadim Hussein Khoso revealed that he had committed suicide and not murdered as reported in an FIR.

The News has learnt that the IGP Sindh had ordered SP (Investigation) Syed Pir Muhammad Shah to conduct an inquiry to determine the cause of Agha Khadim Hussein Khoso’s death within seven days.

Riasat Khoso, brother of the deceased, named Jaman Mirani in the FIR lodged in the A-section police station and alleged that he killed Khadim Khoso over Karo-Kari.

It was learnt the inquiry officer after getting statements, evidences and circumstantial reports found that the youth had committed suicide by shooting himself with a TT pistol.

Khadim Khoso had committed suicide after Jaman Mirani refused to marry his daughter, Roshan Mirani, with him.

It was further revealed that Roshan Mirani was married with Deedar Dahani a few months ago, and later, she was declared kari with Agha Khadim Hussein Khoso.

A Jirga presided over by Ghurgaish Khan Dahani imposed fine of Rs200,000 on Agha Khadim Khoso, and Roshan Mirani was also divorced by Deedar.

Khadim Khoso after paying the fine demanded Roshan’s hand, which her father refused. The officer recommended release of Jaman Khoso, as he was innocent.
