The Supreme Court issued the short order of the implementation of Karachi violence suo motu case on Tuesday.

A five-member apex court bench heard the case from November 26 to 30.

The short order includes details about delimitation of constituencies in Karachi and land allotment.

The order stated that land mafia has a major role in the deteriorating law and order situation of the city.

Voters boundaries

Redrawn since 2002, the “voter boundaries” have been a bone of contention among major stakeholders in Karachi. Rival political parties claim the constituencies have been drawn on ethnic lines to influence polling results. These differences have claimed hundreds of lives over the recent years.

The apex court in its various recommendations had included delimitation of constituencies to split the influence of certain political or ethnic groups.
