Sindh Interior Minister Zia-ul-Hasan Linjar has formed a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to recover missing girl Priya Kumari.

According to the notification issued by the Ministry of Interior Sindh, it has been formed on the request of the Inspector General of Police (IG) for the recovery of Priya Kumari.

It was further informed that the JIT will be headed by Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mirpurkhas Javed Jaskani, other members include Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Hyderabad Amjad Shaikh, Senior Superintendent of Police Shaheed Benazirabad Tanveer Taniv and 2 Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs) are included.

The JIT has been directed to submit a report within three weeks.

It should be noted that on September 5, 2023, the Hindu community of Upper Sindh protested against the abduction of businessmen and children belonging to the minority community, while 2 of the hostages were released by the abductors the evening of the previous day.

Dr. Mehr Chand, senior vice president of the minority wing of the PPP in Sindh, revealed that nothing is known about the 3 missing girls (Nazia, Priya Kumari and Kisur Khoso).

SSP Amjad Shaikh had pointed out that the case of Priya Kumari from Sukkur is 2 years old, apparently it does not fall under his jurisdiction.

On April 1, BBC Urdu reported that Priya, the 9-year-old daughter of Rajkumar alias Raju, a shopkeeper in Sukkur’s town Sangrar, had come to him to lend a hand in the sabil that was installed on the 10th of Muharram.

It was further reported that Raj went home for work and when he returned, his daughter was not there.

According to the report, Priya Kumari, who went missing on August 19, 2021, has not been found even after two and a half years.
