KARACHI: The director general (DG) of Sindh Rangers vowed on Sunday to continue the targeted operation against criminals and terrorists in Karachi until the city has been purged of all such miscreants.

“The Karachi operation will carry on until all criminal elements have been eliminated,” Major General Bilal Akbar said while talking to a delegation of the All Pakistan Security Services Association (APSSA).

He briefed the delegation, led by Brigadier (retd) Rasheed Malik, on law and order, and the ongoing operation in Karachi.

Maj Gen Akbar made it very clear that the Karachi operation was not against any party or group in particular, and stressed that its purpose was to curb criminal elements in the city. He urged political and religious parties not to allow criminals or terrorists into their ranks.

“In spite of a difficult situation, we are committed to protecting lives and property of people in the metropolis,” he said.

Maj Gen Akbar asked the security companies to share information with the Rangers. He also lauded the role of security companies operating in Karachi.

    It is good to read that your operation will continue till it eradicates criminals. Also, Rangers stations are a necessary presence to restore the confidence among citizens.
    If a constitutional amendment is required to establish stations, then surely it can be done with the majority party PMLN and co-operative parties.
    The Rangers must also keep an eye on the security companies and licenses be given only after a strict compliance code. After all the security of the city is at stake.
    However, it is necessary to protect all innocent civilians equally because Pakistan is a beautiful country that has not been handled with care. Good luck and Godspeed. Salams Recommend

    I find no difference in Rangers and private securities- one is funded by people of Sindh and others is for people of Sindh. I agrees both working for each other – get more government/ private moneies. Recommend
