HC Deb 02 May 1927 vol 205 cc1247-8
2. Colonel DAY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he has received a Report of the Hindu-Moslem affray which occurred at Larkana, Upper Sind, on the morning of 30th March; how many people were injured as a result of this dispute; how many arrests were made; and if any of the injuries have resulted fatally?


I have so far received only brief telegraphic Reports. These indicate that 69 persons in all were treated for injuries at hospital, of whom one succumbed to his injuries, and that about 70 persons were arrested.

Colonel DAY

Has the Noble Lord any information as to the origin of the affray?


No, Sir; I have only brief telegraphic information, but I should imagine that it arose in the ordinary way, out of communal feeling.


Has the Noble Lord any information about further riots?


I should have to have notice of that question. I think that since then the district has fortunately quieted down.
