ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali on Tuesday strongly denounced a gun attack on military police in Karachi, in which two personnel embraced martyrdom.
“It is a deplorable attack. We will confront terrorists in every nook and corner of the country,” Nisar told media persons in Islamabad.
He said that the ongoing targeted operation would be expedited in Karachi.
“Such attacks will not deter our resolve to go after terrorists in Karachi,” he added.
The statement came shortly after two masked men on motorcycle opened fire on a military vehicle, killing two troops.
The martyrs were identified as Lance Naik Arshad and Hawaldar Rashid. Their bodies were shifted to PNS Shifa for medic-legal formalities.
In a statement, ISPR confirmed the attack and termed it an act of terrorism. – SAMAA
