KARACHI:

Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh said on Friday that a considerable number of deaths of innocent people due to poor law and order in Sindh was PPP government's New Year present to people of the province who were not feeling secure even in their homes.

"A well-coordinated operation by Pakistan Rangers across the province particularly in Karachi was the only option to improve deteriorated law and order situation in Sindh and curtail increasing cases of murder, robbery and snatching," Sheikh said.

He said that a deep sense of insecurity had developed among citizens of Karachi and they were not safe even at their doorstep as five citizens had lost their lives in the last few days in Karachi while offering resistance to robbers and more than 40 people got injured by robbers.

Sindh police was heavily politicised after promulgation of Police Order 2019 and indulged in criminal activities while outlaws were at large and fearlessly operating across the province, he alleged adding that it seemed that criminals in year 2022 were issued license to kill and rob the citizens as instances of dacoit, car theft, motorcycle snatching and other crimes has increased manifold.

"The situation in Karachi demands a proactive role of federal law enforcement agencies for establishing writ of law and maintenance of law and order in the metropolis," he stressed.
