    I love it when ET reports “Police has cordoned off the area and started the investigation”. We all know what level of “INVESTIGATION” is performed by Karachi police

    Although the crime rate has reduced considerably in Karachi after the launch of targeted operation in the City but the current crimes rate is also beyond tolerance level of any civilized country…
    The only solution, and as demanded by all Trade bodies of Karachi, is to commence Army Operation in Karachi because we all know the capability & inability limitations of Police under PPP+MQM Government.

    @Adnan Siddiqui:
    Hehe. Yes the police probably extorted money from the injured saying” ghalti to aap ke bhi the aap wahan khare the”.

    Thank God no casualties. Take our money not our lives. Please leave peace loving, progressive and unarmed society of Karachites alone

    @Muslim Leaguer: Let me correct a Punjab oriented thinker that MQM is in no position within Sindh Govt to help secure Karachiites. All the relevant ministries (CM, Home Ministry, Interior Minister) and top policemen are all placed by PPP. Stop pointing fingers on MQM when you are far from ground realities of feudal Sindh1
