Express Channel reported today that the policemen that were posted at the school immediately flew the school once the senior officers finished their visit. Karachi Police is brimming over with people from interior Sinned province who have come to Karachi for the only goal of looting the people and this city they have no interest or intention of safeguarding them. Secondly most of these policemen are deployed to protect the Wadera Corruption Party thugs and other criminals.
