Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that government is fully determined to take a stern action against the miscreants and outlaws who are destabilising the country.
“Everything has a limit, enough is enough, we are going to take extraordinary measures to restore peace and normalcy in Karachi,” he said while talking to the media after presiding a high level meeting at the National Crisis Management Cell (NCMC) in Karachi.
The meeting was attended by Acting Sindh Rangers Director General, Brigadier Zafar Iqbal, Sindh Police Inspector General Wajid Ali Khan Durrani and Sindh Home Minister Manzoor Wassan.
Rehman Malik said that 26 people were killed in various parts of the city on Monday by terrorists who targeted people of all clan and race.
“We are committed to take action with force against the law breakers,” he asserted.
“Now even our children and mothers are being targeted,” he said, adding that government will not allow anti-state elements to destabilise the country.
The minister said that a strategy has been prepared to take action against 90,000 Afghans living in Karachi with fake documents and the government would also check the illegal Bengali immigrants. “We will bring peace in Karachi at all cost and no one will be allowed to hold the city hostage at gun point,” he added.
Another report said Frontier Corps has been given police powers in Karachi to maintain law and order and launch operation in troubled areas.
