Hub [Balochistan], May 13 (ANI): A Hindu businessman and his son were recently shot dead during a robbery bid in Pakistan's Balochistan province.
Pakistan-based human rights activist and blogger Kapil Dev, in a tweet, "Hindu trader Jaipal & his son Haresh were shot dead while they were returning from their shop yesterday in Hub Choki. This is second double murder incident followed by two brothers' murder in Mithi in Jan. Media is busy in covering jalsas, so plz raise voice for the justice here!."

Jaipal Das and his son Haresh Das were returning to Hub from a nearby city when they were attacked by the robbers. The two tried to resist the robbery bid and were shot as a result.

Protests against the killing broke out on the Karachi-Quetta road leading to a road blockade.

Earlier, in January this year, the same kind of incident had taken place where two brothers, who were food grain traders by profession, were shot dead by robbers in Shahi Bazaar of Mithi town.
Daleep Maheshwari and his brother Chandar Maheshwari, who were 42 and 40 respectively, were busy handling the routine trading at their business place when two assailants riding a motorcycle shot them at point-blank range. They snatched money from them and drove away.

This had triggered a wave of protest in various towns of Tharparkar and Umerkot districts. (ANI)
