Memon denies Sindh govt hobnobbing with outlaws


Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon has strongly rebuffed the allegations that Pakistan Peoples’ Party-led (PPP) Sindh government has any nexus with outlaws and that it was facilitating them in Karachi.

Talking to reporters on Saturday, Sharjeel said, “We have nothing to do with the criminals disturbing the law and order situation in the metropolis”.

The provincial minister said Rangers have been given a free hand to conduct raids at will to curb lawlessness.

To a question he said, “There would have been no operation in Karachi had the Sindh government opposed it,” adding, “We have not demanded the release of any suspected criminal held by the security agencies”.

Responding to a query, he said that all expenses of the on-going operation in Karachi were being paid by the Sindh government.
