KARACHI: The Sindh High Court has taken notice of the killings in Karachi based on a petition submitted by an NGO that said over 400 people have lost their lives in three months.

It has summoned officials for April 18. The petition was filed by Rana Faizul Hasan of the United Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (not to be confused with the HRCP).

In the petition, Hasan has appealed to the court to immediately order the removal of the IG of Sindh police and the director general of the Rangers in Sindh as they have failed to maintain law and order in Karachi. Hasan also argued that politically influenced police appointments have spoiled the force which is why no action is taken on the streets of Karachi.
