KARACHI:


The Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) Coordination Committee questioned the role of law enforcement agencies in a statement condemning the recent spate of violence in Karachi.


The committee condemned attacks on police officers, targeted killings and grenade attacks on transporters and other traders, but in the same breath hit out at the law enforcement agencies for the increase in extortion threats and terrorist activities.

The attacks on people from a cross-section of society and different professions made it appear that terrorists had been given an “open license”, said the statement issued on Wednesday.

The committee noted that there was a question mark on the performance of law enforcement agencies and called on the president, prime minister, interior minister and the Sindh governor and chief minister to take notice of the events in Karachi and chalk out a strategy to deal with them.
