Protesters demand a transparent investigation into alleged suicide of cook in Clifton house – Pakistan


Hindu community members in Karachi held a protest outside the Karachi Press Club to express their concerns over the suspicious death of Maro Meghwar, a 23-year-old cook working at a businessman’s Clifton bungalow. The protesters carried banners calling for an impartial inquiry into the incident and the arrest of those responsible for his alleged “murder”. They claimed that Maro had been mistreated by his employer and had called his family to inform them he was leaving his job. However, the businessman later informed them that Maro had committed suicide by hanging himself in the servant quarters. The protesters accused the Frere police of not registering an FIR on the relatives’ complaint and demanded a fair investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death. Police officials deemed it a suicide and an autopsy was conducted, with the cause of death pending further investigation. The family has sought legal action, and a court hearing is scheduled for November 10.
