Daily Messenger - - SPORT­LIGHT -

LARKANA, Jul 11: The end of ban­dit of Sindh and Balochis­tan, Nazroo Narejo has brought hap­pi­ness to his ri­vals & en­e­mies and peace­ful ci­ti­zens have also breathed a sigh of re­lief.

Nazroo be­came no­to­ri­ous for 'pur­chas­ing' kid­napped per­sons from other gangs and re­leas­ing them af­ter get­ting heavy ran­som. He used to kill those cap­tives whose ran­som was not paid to him or was de­layed for any rea­son.

Nazroo was in­fected with deadly dis­ease Hepati­tis C and af­ter that he left the crime world. Be­fore that he was bit­ten by a snake but he sur­vived. He was also suf­fer­ing from kid­ney fail­ure.

He had oc­cu­pied vast river­ine lands on the left & right banks of In­dus. He was very fond of cat­tle herds spe­cially buf­faloes & goats and his cat­tle pan in Karachi con­tains hun­dreds of such buf­faloes.

Nazroo en­tered crim­i­nal world af­ter his fa­ther Rab Rakhiyo Narejo was killed in 1990 in a 'po­lice en­counter'. It is al­leged that their lands were oc­cu­pied by a land­lord of that area. Af­ter his fa­ther's death Nazroo shifted to Sad­hoo For­est dur­ing 2001 along with his fam­ily. He was an il­lit­er­ate per­son. He had two wives, seven sons and two daugh­ters, three sons from first wife and 4 sons and 2 daugh­ters from the sec­ond wife out of which one son Iqbal Narejo was killed three years ago.

Nazroo was called king of da­coits. He sold his 900 acres land lo­cated in river­ine area to Pir Sadarud­din Shah Rashidi in 2011 af­ter he got the land back through a jirga which was presided over by late Sar­dar Khadim Hus­sain Ja­toi and was held in the rest house of Khair­pur in 1997.

His en­mity started with his rel­a­tives and many other com­mu­ni­ties due to which some of them shifted to vil­lages Iz­zat Ji Wandh, Phulpota & Naun­dero and he also shifted his fam­ily to forests from Khair­pur's katcha area known as Bhai Khan Ji Wandh.

About seven months be­fore he left the forests and started liv­ing in the lim­its of Golo Daro po­lice sta­tion of Garhi Yasin af­ter hav­ing en­mity with his own cousins Yousuf Narejo & Ab­bas Narejo. He was killed in the same area on Satur­day.

He car­ried a head money of Rs20 mil­lion. His fa­ther had killed noted Sindh story writer Naseem Kharal.

In 1998 Nazro com­pleted his 100 killings and then called a grand meet­ing of all da­coits op­er­at­ing in Sindh and be­came 'king of da­coits' and was called ' Shah of forests' as well. In 1992 he had killed nine vil­lagers of Mo­hil com­mu­nity to took re­venge of his as­so­ciate An­wer Narejo.
