The Ranger's Jawan on duty near a park in Karachi had killed a young man in an event of misjudgment. He was tried by the Anti Terrorism Court and with in a month was awarded death penalty. It is now imperative that same yard stick of justice should be applied to these culprits. Otherwise the rangers deployed in Karachi may lose confidence in the Government and the system.
