KARACHI: Even traffic police will be armed and on duty at police stations tomorrow, May 12, decided the chief of police Monday.
Tuesday, May 12 will be the second anniversary of the killings that took place in Karachi as opposition party workers attempted to receive the then deposed chief justice of Pakistan at the airport. One of the biggest complaints was that the police and rangers failed to protect the political party workers who were gunned down in broad daylight on Shahra-e Faisal at the Baloch Colony flyover. No arrests have been made to date.
Each of Karachi’s 18 towns has been declared sensitive, said CCPO Waseem Ahmed. Anyone who creates mischief will be dealt with. Five thousand men have been put on duty with about 500 for the larger towns and 300 each for the smaller ones. All police stations, the police training centre and traffic police will be on duty.
The paramilitary Rangers have increased their patrolling along the highways connected to Karachi. SAMAA
