US wants killers of Hindus in Pak brought to justice

Washington: The US on Wednesday underlined the need to bring to justice those involved in gunning down three Hindus in Pakistan`s southern Sindh province. "We have seen the reports of these murders. We understand that an investigation is underway and we look forward to seeing the perpetrators brought to justice," the State Department said in a written statement.

Three Hindus, including a doctor, were killed near Shikarpur town in Sindh province on Monday.

Responding to questions about the killing of the three Hindus, the State Department slammed the targetting of religious, ethnic and other minorities. "We condemn all violence directed at religious, ethnic and other minorities. We call attention to the issue of sectarian violence in the Human Rights Report and the International Religious Freedom Report, issued annually by the Department of State," the State Department said.
