MIRPURKHAS -- Jhuddo police, acting upon an order of the Sindh High Court, Hyderabad circuit, carried out a raid on a specified place within the farmlands of the Gugh Morion area on Sunday and took 24 men, women and children into protective custody.

The court had ordered the raid on an application filed by a peasant, Chunno Kolhi, who stated that his 24 close relatives had been held in bonded labour by the owner of the farmland. Jhuddo SHO Farman Ali said that the families would be kept at the police station overnight and produced in court on Monday to record their statement.
