KARACHI: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday hailed targeted operation in Karachi which is continuing relentlessly with daily arrests of criminals including target killers and recovery of weapons during raids by Rangers and police.

A five-member larger bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry resumed hearing of Karachi law and-order suo motu implementation case in Supreme Court’s Karachi Registry on Tuesday.


During today’s proceedings, Additional Inspector General Sindh police Shahid Hayat appeared before the apex court and submitted a report on police crackdown against outlaws.

The Karachi police chief stated that targeted operations were carried out in the city in order to curb the violence and street crime. He told the court that over 5000 cases have been registered since the police operation begun.

Advocate General Sindh apprised the court that a campaign was launched in the city to recover illegal arms and, as a result, peace has returned to the city. He described the ongoing violence in Lyari as mere armed clash between two criminal gangs.

The chief justice appreciated police and Rangers actions in Karachi; however, he said that Sindh government’s claims stand in sharp contrast to media reports.
