The participants in rally held placards and banners that bore slogans like “Justice for murdered Shaheena Shaheen”.

According to details, the family members of the vicim, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), Baloch Students Organization (BSO) and activists from various social organizations participated in the protest.

The participants started the rally from college road to Thermometer Chowk, which then culminated as a demonstration on Shaheed Fida Chowk.
