Pakistan-based journalist Veengas Tweeted, “I am devastated by getting details on the case. Three days ago, in Sanghar Diya, Bheel was decapitated by brutal murder after being raped. The police have not filed FIR, and no person in the Sindh govt or Human Rights orgs bother to speak about it. Hindus never matter to state.”

Her head was severed from her body, and the savages had stripped the flesh off her entire head. I visited her village. Police teams from Sinjhoro and Shahpurchakar also arrived.”
