Tribal feud claims life of educationist
HYDRABAD: The tribal feuds in the upper Sindh region claimed the life of a prominent educationist who had come back from France with a PhD in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to serve his people.
IBA Sukkur Computer Science Department Assistant Prof Dr Muhammad Ajmal Sawand was killed in a brazen attack by armed men of Sundrani tribe in Kandhkot-Kashmore district on Thursday.
Prof Ajmal was going back from his village in Kandhkot to Sukkur when Sundarani tribesmen attacked his vehicle with fire arms.
The district’s SSP Irfan Samo told Daily City news that Sawand — a doctor of philosophy (PhD) in artificial intelligence (AI) with several years of teaching experience in Paris, from where he obtained that degree in 2015 — sustained 11 gunshot wounds. The killers later released a video in which they can be seen indulging in celebratory firing after shooting Prof Ajmal dead.
The feud has so far claimed seven lives in four months since December, 2022. Four persons of Sundranis and three of Sawands have been killed. He said over two weeks ago armed men of Sawand tribe shot dead three men of Sundranis.
