Malik announces Quaid-e-Azam Police Medal for officials arresting target killers


Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has announced Quaid-e-Azam police medals and cash rewards for a deputy superintendent
police (DSP), an officer, and other senior cops who took part in operation in Lyari, Orangi Town and Qasba Colony and arrested target killers.
Talking to the media here on Wednesday morning, Malik said that law enforcement agencies personnel have a key role to play in restoring peace in the city and keeping a check on people involved in sabotaging the peace of Karachi. He said that to promote and enhance the performance of police and other forces, their services should be recognised and praised so as to set an example for others.
The minister said that an environment of competition in any institution is vital for its development and for improving the performance of its employees.
It is worth mentioning that the police and Rangers carried out joint search operations in different areas of Karachi after Tuesday midnight following a high-level meeting in Islamabad, jointly chaired by President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani, which gave approval of surgical operations in troubled areas of the metropolitan city.
Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) teams kept many areas of Lyari under siege for no less than four hours but only succeeded in arresting five suspected militants.
A number of arrests were however made from Orangi Town, Kati Pahari, and Qasba Colony areas, and the arrested have been shifted to an unknown location for interrogation.
