‘Surgical operation’ in Karachi on cards to stem growing violence

As the wave of violence gripping Karachi for a almost a week continued unabated and at least 12 lives were lost on Monday, the government decided to launch a surgical operation immediately without discrimination in all areas which have become combat zones because of target killings, extortion, land grab and politicised turf wars.

This was stated by Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon on Monday night while briefing newsmen about the decisions taken by the government after two marathon sessions of the Sindh cabinet at the Chief Minister’s House with Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in the chair.

Terming the meetings as fruitful which will give positive results, Mr Memon said there was a detailed discussion on the situation in the city and different options were taken into consideration.

He said the government had decided to ensure protection of the life and property of people by foiling all conspiracies being hatched against democracy because if Karachi was disturbed, the entire country was disturbed. more
