KARACHI: Karachi is out of the virtual state of lockdown which gripped the city on Friday after the assassination of senior MQM leader Imran Farooq in London.

The closure of petrol pumps, markets, shopping centres and educational institutions was witnessed in Karachi soon after the news of Dr Farooq’s murder came out.

Low attendance was observed in educational institutions and offices which opted to remain open.

In order to maintain peace in the city, heavy contingents of police and rangers have been deployed in various sensitive areas.

Meanwhile shops and businesses in Hyderabad have also resumed work today after a strike on the call of Hyderabad Chambers of Commerce and Industry ended.
