KARACHI: DG Rangers Major-General Bilal Akbar on Wednesday once again reiterated his resolve to make Karachi a crime-free, peaceful city.

In his meeting with Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad at the Governor House, matters of professional interests and Karachi’s law and order were discussed in detail.

While the governor applauded paramilitary force’s sacrifices in maintaining the law and order of the city, they also considered devising a plan of action to make the ongoing action against criminals more transparent, and resolving people’s complaints.

With consent of the federal government and Pakistan Army as part of the ongoing Karachi operation and the National Action Plan, Rangers along with police have been tasked to rid Karachi of criminal elements, irrespective of their political, ethnic or religious affiliation.

Rangers recently have made a number of criminals allegedly a part of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) involved in extortion and other illegal activities.

The paramilitary forces in March this year had raided MQM headquarters Nine Zero, and arrested a number of high-profile criminals.

AK | 5 years ago | Reply I don't understand the role of this corrupt Governor, why we forget that how many cases are against him pending or closed for decades. In our country the law is different for different people. This nation needs Hitler in a bad mood and justice for every one.
