The people protesting against the killing of a servant of a revenue officer at the latter’s home in Hyderabad ended their sit-in on Friday as talks between Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Kashif Shoro and SP headquarters Anil Haider with them remained successful, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.   

The body of Usman Soomro, servant of Majid Khaskheli, revenue officer of Qasimabad area of Hyderabad, was shifted to hospital.

Earlier on Friday, relatives of Usman, whose bullet-riddled body was found at Khaskheli’s home, lost their temper and attacked the revenue officer’s home. 

The video footage, obtained by 24News, shows the relatives as well other enraged people beating Khaskheli and policemen with sticks.
