IG Sindh Fayyaz Leghari said an army op­er­a­tion should not be con­ducted in Karachi, adding that the ca­pac­ity of the al­ready present para­mil­i­tary forces in the city should be in­creased.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence in Hy­der­abad, IG Sindh Leghari said that the army will not be called in dur­ing Muhar­ram and they have only been asked to re­main on standby. While talk­ing about the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion in Karachi, Leghari said it was not sec­tar­ian prob­lems but a third el­e­ment that was in­volved in mak­ing the city un­sta­ble. IG Sindh Leghari fur­ther claimed that 165 tar­get killers and 12,000 ter­ror­ists have been ar­rested till now, adding that no mem­bers of po­lit­i­cal wings were among those ar­rested. Speak­ing about sec­tar­ian ter­ror­ism in Hy­der­abad, IG Sindh as­sured that wave of sec­tar­ian vi­o­lence has been con­trolled and four ac­cused in sec­tar­ian killings have been ar­rested from the city.
