Law and order situation in Karachi is significantly improving: Chandio

KARACHI: Sindh Advisor Information and Archives Moula Bux Chandio said on Thursday that law and order situation in Karachi is improving significantly soon after new Sindh Chief Minister has assumed the charge of his office.

“The interior ministry has approved a 90-day extension in the special policing powers of Sindh Rangers in Karachi and has also issued notification in this regard. There is sharp decline in target killing, extortion, robberies and dacoities in Karachi after which people are passing their social and business life with peace,” Chandio said in a statement.

The advisor said that Sindh government is fully empowered under the 18th Constitutional Amendment to take decision for maintaining law and order; however, consultation with the federal government is required in this regard, which has been fulfilled constantly.

He said: “The Rangers and police will now continue operation against terrorism, extortion and target killing, and no criminal will be let move free, he said. “Sindh government and Rangers actions in Karachi are in accordance with the National Action Plan, which was approved by major political parties.”  Agencies
