Tar­geted Karachi Po­lice

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

AQIL BABA

Seven cops were killed Orangi Town, in Karachi while six oth­ers were shot dead by the gang­sters in the Ra­jan­pur in south­ern Pun­jab. Sadly, Karachi has re­mained no-go area for the peo­ple as well as the law en­forc­ing agen­cies. Hun­dreds of po­lice­men have been killed in broad day­light in the last four years. Ac­cord­ing to foren­sic ev­i­dence the weapons used to kill seven po­lice per­sons in Orangi were also in­volved in the killing of over a score of vic­tims over the last two years. The gang, how­ever, re­maims un­traced. Karachi, with the pop­u­la­tion of 2 mil­lion has just 25 thou­sand po­lice­men to look af­ter se­cu­rity mat­ters, law and or­der, crime, ter­ror­ism, bhatta mafia and above all the pro­to­col du­ties of the mem­bers of the good-for-noth­ing govern­ment; it is of course a mat­ter of grave concern for every sen­si­ble Pak­istani. The law en­force­men au­thor­i­ties have failed to con­trol the crime and law en­force­ment is­sues, de­spite many op­er­a­tions, termed as ‘suc­cess­ful’. The law and or­der sit­u­a­tion con­tinue to re­main de­plorable in the city. There is gen­uinely im­me­di­ate need for a loud and ag­gres­sive wake up for the lethar­gic rulers, im­pelling them to take nec­es­sary action to re­store lights of city of lights. — Via email
