Sources at the Home Department said that the Sindh Chief Secretary had written a letter to the Karachi

Corps Commander, asking to deploy armed forces in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Mirpurkhas and Larkana divisions.

The army would not patrol roads but remain on alert in the district headquarters on both the days.

Earlier, Sindh Minister for Prisons Manzoor Wasan had approved the federal government’s decision to deweaponise the country and supported the idea of conducting operations in Karachi.

“There is nothing wrong in conducting operations and deweaponisation of Karachi,” he had said, adding that not only the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), but the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Awami National Party (ANP) are also in support of such an action.

Wasan, who had also served as Sindh Home Minister, however, ruled out the concerns expressed by MQM Chief Altaf Hussain regarding Karachi operation and said that the action would be taken against criminals, extortionists, land mafia and suspects involved in terrorist activities.

“Karachi has become a nursery for the criminals and it is high time to start an operation without any delay,” he said.
