Pakistan80 % terrorism, crimes reduced in Karachi: Sindh CM

KARACHI, Pakistan: The Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has said that the Karachi operation against criminals has produced positive results and there has been 80 percent decrease in terrorism, target killing, extortion and kidnapping for ransom.

In his address at the 28th Passing out Parade of Eagle Force at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Police Training Centre in Karachi on Saturday, the Chief Minister Shah vowed to root out the menace of terrorism at all costs.

Syed Qaim Ali Shah said that law and order in the province particularly in Karachi has also been improved due to efforts of security forces.

The Karachi operation was launched in September 2013 against terrorists and criminals by the federal government with the consensus of all political stakeholders in Sindh.

The Sindh Rangers are heading the Karachi operation; however, the issue of special powers granted to the paramilitary forces has been the cause of contention between the federal government and mainstream political parties in Sindh.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have in the past voiced series reservations over Rangers’ special powers, arguing that the law enforcement agency is acting beyond its mandate and illegally arresting their respective political workers. Both the parties want Rangers’ powers be curtailed.
