Imdad Joya’s daughter’s crying video message was shared on social media

Imdad Joya’s daughter, Rababa Joya, through a crying video message widely circulated on social media, has appealed for justice. She has demanded of the Balochistan Chief Minister and IG Police and other institutions to come forward and bring the perpetrators to book.

According to Imdad Ali Joya’s daughter, she has her own ancestral land which is in the name of her ancestors, which the influential people of the area want to occupy. “We had demanded the protection of the lands”, she said in the video. But there was no hearing, Rubaba lamented.

They deprived us of the shadow of our beloved father: Rubaba Joya

What was feared was that happened, the oppressors took away the shadow of our father from us, and she bursts into tears. We accompanied the body to the city of Osta Muhammad to demand justice for the brutal murder of my father. Decided to protest, to thwart which the police blocked the road and charged us with sticks, for two hours the body was kept in custody by the police, she complained.

There was no immediate response from the police in this regard.
