The protest demonstrations and rallies were held in Nawabshah, Qazi Ahmed, Larkana, Ratodero, Moro, Miro Khan, Sann, Tando Muhammad Khan and other areas of the province. While, National Highway was blocked in Sakrand due to which heavy traffic jammed.


The protesters demanded immediate release of the JSQM Chairman. The JSQM central leadership has also called for a shutter down strike across Sindh.
