The people took the street in protest against the against the cowardly murder and the general terror on the people and torched a bus of the public transportation System.

he protests were preceded by an operation by the military police. The security forces pursued criminals who had allegedly fled to the house of the family of the later shot child. The police forces climbed over the wall of the backyard and opened fire without a word. A bullet hit the eleven-year-old daughter in the lung and she died in hospital.

Instead of helping the injured girl, the police pressed the barrel of a gun into the father's face and interrogated him.
