Justice For Irfan Jatoi has started gaining momentum on social media as the young student was first abducted from his university hostel and later was shot dead in an alleged police encounter on Sunday in Sukkur district.
The deceased, twenty-five-year-old Irfan Jatoi was a student at the University of Sindh. He was picked by the Hyderabad and Jamshoro Police from the University’s International Hostel on February 10. Suddenly the news of his death in police encounter was head after 25 days of his disappearance.
The encounter took place on the National Highway in the limits of Jhangro Police Station. The police crimes are well known by all in the country. They get away with killing of innocent souls. They have license to kill even the innocent. The question arises can they get inside a hostel and grab any one without an arrest warrant.
