Chief Jus­tice of Sindh High Court, Jus­tice Alam has re­jected the gov­ern­ment's plea to ban the mo­tor­bike rid­ing in Karachi, ex­cept for 9th and 10th day of Muhar­ram. Jus­tice Alam has stated that the gov­ern­ment should im­prove se­cu­rity ar­range­ments in­stead of putting ban on mo­tor­bike ride for a ten-day pe­riod. Ad­di­tional Chief Sec­re­tary for In­te­rior af­fairs, Sindh, Wasim Ahmed and Ad­vo­cate Gen­eral Sindh Ab­dul Fateh Ma­lik Tues­day ap­peared be­fore the court. The court heard the stance of the gov­ern­ment's coun­sels. The lawyers stated that the sen­si­tive in­sti­tu­tions have been in­formed that mo­tor­cy­cles would be used in ter­ror­ist ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing Muhar­ram.
