A complete shutterdown strike was observed paralysing business activities in all markets in Tando Allahyar on Saturday to protest the murder of MQM-P leader Khaliur Rehman alias Bholu Khanzada, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The traffic on roads was also thin after the protesters set on fire a car and several motorcycles after Bholu Khanzada’s murder on Friday for which cases have been registered.

Ten people were nominated in the cases while 30 identified persons were also mentioned in the FIRs.

The city gave a deserted look after the call of the MQM-P to observe a strike against the murder. Private schools and fillings stations were also closed down.

Khalil alias Bholu Khanzada, nominated in the Nov 18, 2020 murder case of Sindh Taraqqi-Pasand Party (STP) vice-chairman Altaf Jaskani, was shot dead outside the sessions court in Tando Allahyar on Friday.

Reports from the crime scene suggested that Khanzada along with his brother drove to the court on a motorcycle to attend the hearing of the case when a car carrying the attackers hit the two-wheeler. Khanzada tried to run to safety by entering the court but one of the car occupants shot him dead.

Bholu Khanzada along with his cousin, Zamir, and Aslam Rind — said to be the prime suspect in the Altaf Jaskani murder case — were nominated in the case after the Nov 18, 2020 murder in Tando Allahyar. Zamir and Aslam Rind are in police custody whereas Khanzada has been on bail in the case.
