Cancelling his visit to Sri Lanka, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif arrived in Karachi on Wednesday following the attack on Ismaili Shia community members in the city.

The army chief will be reviewing the security situation in Karachi after the terrorist attack on a bus carrying Ismailis, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in another short statement.

A military source told the local TV channel DawnNews that during his visit to Karachi, Gen Raheel will comprehensively review the entire security situation, and will also receive a briefing from Corps Commander Karachi Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar and Director General (DG) Rangers Major General Bilal Akbar.

The source added that important decisions are also expected as far as the security situation in Karachi is concerned.

In a tweet posted earlier on Twitter, Director General (DG) ISPR Asim Bajwa said that Gen Raheel on Wednesday cancelled his pre-scheduled three-day visit to Sri Lanka in light of the attack in Karachi.

At least 43 persons were killed earlier today when gunmen attacked a bus carrying members of the Ismaili community near Safoora Chowk in Karachi.
