NAUNDERO: The heirs and relatives of the 18-year-old woman, Raheela Jeho, who was allegdly killed two days ago allegedly by her husband by forcing her to drink poison-mixed drink and dragging her like a dog, held a protest demonstration and blocked Larkana-Sukkur road near Naundero Sugar Mill here on Sunday evening.

The protesters were chanting slogans whil holding the Holy Book on their heads. Rukhsana and father Mohammad Bux Jeho said that police had refused to lodge FIR.

They said that accused Sonal Jeho also killed his first wife Basraan Jeho six months back on the pretext of Kari as he found her talking on cell phone with her cousin Nadim Jeho but he was never taken to task as they added he came out within three months with the favour of police and then started threatening Nadim Jeho for Jirga or else he will kill him.

The Jirga was held in which it was proved that Nadim was Karo. The jirga imposed a fine of Rs 2,50,000 and marriage of Sonal with the daughter of Nadim’s brother Mohammad Bux. They further narrated their tale that Mohammad Bux Jeho gave his one daughter Raheela to Sonal and sold his another daughter Farzana in Rs 2,50,000 to pay the fine amount and to save his brother’s life.

Sonal’s Nikah was held at a mosque where he was also paid the fine amount. They said and added that the accused did not come for Rukhsati and just sent a woman for that purpose and Raheela’s unique Rukhsati was made without her groom.
