According to a notification issued by the law department, the session has been called at 3pm.

"Thar is the only place in Pakistan where zero crime prevails and Muslims and Hindus have lived peacefully for centuries. It looks like the peace and co-existence is being sabotaged with the killing of brothers Dileep and Chandar Maheshwari, who were killed in broad daylight. It has created fear among people especially minorities living over, so I request to discuss this matter in the house," reads the motion submitted by PML-F parliamentary leader Nand Kumar.

Another adjournment motion, submitted by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MPA Khurrum Sher Zaman, calls for holding debate in the assembly on the rise in street crime in Karachi. "The menace of street crime is affecting citizens of all socio-economic groups in the city and needs to be curbed immediately by police and law enforcement agencies," Zaman said, adding that since the matter was of public importance, the home minister must inform the House about actions taken  by the government to clamp down on street crime.
