KARACHI: The Rangers Director-General (DG) Major General Muhammad Saeed on Wednesday stressed that forces against the country won’t be tolerated.
“Forces operating against Pakistan won’t be tolerated and nor will [the Rangers] allow any [political] party to create a target-killer wing,” said General Saeed while addressing senior journalists on Wednesday.
He added that law enforcement agencies could not monitor ‘thoughts’ but they would also not allow any illegal use of weapons.
“There has been a noticeable decrease in crime within four years of the [Karachi] operation,” he said. “No incident of terrorism has been reported [so far] in 2017.”
He also said that ‘those who terrorised Karachi’ will not be forgiven.
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,” said Major General Saeed during the media talk.
