The police had begun investigating the incident and also encouraged the general public to volunteer information to help in arresting the perpetrators.

The deceased was 65 years old and left behind seven (7) children according to the family.

Narrating his last days, the family said the deceased left the house on Friday, July 29, 2022, after the evening Muslim prayers to his duty post but did not return home until his lifeless body was found in the uncompleted building around his duty post on Sunday morning.

The family further raised an alarm on the evening of Saturday and a search for Jato began.

We all prayed together on Friday before he left for work and Saturday evening he had not yet returned so we informed each other and started searching for him, first at his farm, then at his workplace but we didn’t find him.

We then went to the police station, in case he has committed an offence and arrested but we didn’t find him, we also thought of possible accident so we went to the hospitals but didn’t find him there too”, he explained.
