‘Those who terrorised Karachi’ will not be forgiven: DG Rangers Sindh
Karachi (Web Desk): The Director General (DG) Rangers Sindh Major General Muhammad Saeed on Wednesday said that ‘those who terrorised Karachi’ will not be forgiven.
General Saeed said while addressing senior journalists earlier today said that forces operating against Pakistan won’t be tolerated and nor will the Rangers allow any political party to create a target-killer wing.
He said that there has been a perceptible shrink in crime during four years of the Karachi operation and no incident of terrorism has been reported so far in 2017.
The paramilitary force has been engaged in combing out terrorist factions inhabiting the city including the terrorist outfit Ansarul Shariah.
The Rangers and Counter-Terrorism Department conducted a raid earlier this year in October and killed the chief of terrorist outfit Ansarul Shariah.
Citing the city’s crime statistics for the current year, the DG Rangers said that only four incidents of extortion were reported this year and the paramilitary force handed over more than 1400 criminals to the police during the present year.
“Karachi was on the sixth spot on the crime index in 2013, and it now stands on the fifty-second position on the same index,” Major General Saeed during the media talk.
A large number of wanted suspects have been nabbed and large caches of weapons and explosive materials, among other things, have been recovered from terrorists’ hideouts since the operation commenced.
