Karachi Corps Commander Lieutenant General Naveed Mukhtar on Saturday said that the army will fully assist the ongoing operation to restore law and order in Karachi.

Talking to reporters after offering the funeral prayers of two Rangers soldiers who were martyred in a suicide attack on Friday , he said the sacrifices rendered by the law enforcement agencies’ personnel will not go to waste.

Lt General Mukhtar said the security forces are ready to render any sacrifice to eliminate terrorism and establish peace in the country. He vowed to end terrorism in Karachi.

Meanwhile, security of more than 30 sensitive installations has been handed over to Special Security Unit (SSU).

According to reports, the decision was made in view of the aggravated situation of law and order in the metropolis.

According to Superintendant Police (SP) Rana Shoaib, the special unit will be prepared to deal with all sorts of prevailing dangers. The commandos of the special unit will be deployed on 30 sensitive installations, he added. Moreover, the commandos also flag marched before their deployment to develop a sense of security among the citizens.

On the other hand, Director General (DG) Rangers Sindh Major General Bilal Akbar has given a three-day deadline to remove all the barriers in the metropolis.

DG Rangers stated that barriers in the name of security will not be tolerated and if they are not removed in the given span of time then indiscriminate action will be taken by the Rangers against those who will disobey the law.

Furthermore he said that impediments and barriers cause difficulties for the public and law enforcing agencies to conduct their operations.


The initial investigation report of the suicide bomb blast at Qalandri Chowk in North Nazimabad on Friday night has been finalized.

According to the report, the motorcycle used by the attacker did not bear a number plate and there is no chassis number also. It is difficult to identify the owner of the motorcycle due to lack of identification number. At least five to six kilogram (kg) explosive material was used in the bomb blast.

Moreover, metal pieces were used in the suicide vest. Pieces of the suicide vest have also been found from the blast site. The bomb disposal squad has also found the button of the improvised explosive device.

Earlier, the funeral prayers of as many as two Rangers personnel were offered who embraced martyrdom in the suicide attack last night.



  1. I would like to call your attention Director General (DG) Rangers Sindh Major General Bilal Akbar to please remove the barriers in the name of security at North Nazimabad A block near Rangers quaters and Rangers public school, which is casing a lot of inconvenience to the public.

  2. I would draw the attention of authorities towards such unlawful barriers all around the country specially in kpk as well. Such barriers can create Karachi like situation here also.therefore authorities are requested to ensure such barriers from all over the countries not only from Karachi.
