I wish if the target killers instead of killing human beings in Karachi would have killed the Dengue Mosquito’s on a ratio of “one bullet one mosquito” and have save the precious human lives.

The cache of arms and ammunition recovered from the target killers by the Rangers could have been used to kill the rest of Dengue Mosquito’s from the country.
