KARACHI: A judicial bench of the apex court on Wednesday ordered the IG Sindh along with other officials to submit a report regarding the infiltration of more than 7,000 Taliban in Karachi by Thursday, Express News reported.

The order was given during the Supreme Court’s hearing of the case regarding the implementation of its recommendations in the Karachi violence suo motu case.

Heading a larger bench, Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali ordered that all unregistered cars and motorcycles in the city should be seized.

Justice Jamali said that cars are seen being driven around without bearing any registration number plates. He questioned how unregistered cars without fitness certificates even make it to the roads. “Such cars are used in criminal activities and should be seized.

He observed that due to the declining security situation, the economic activities in Karachi have almost become “zero”, however, IG Sindh and DG Rangers kept saying that “everything is okay.”

The Supreme Court adjourned the hearing till tomorrow.

I have my doubts. May be 70 not 7000. If 7000 where are they staying in which locality.

This alarming news should not only be a matter of great concern to Karachites but also to the people of other major cities in Pakistan being their next destinations.
