Chilli | 10 years ago | Reply After watching rangers vidoe of killing in broad day light, we can think of negative role of security agencies keeping Karachi violence alive to secure their jobs and get more luxuries. In presence of a huge number of corrupt security apparatus, no one can imagine peace in Karachi.
