At the apex committee of Sindh province, Director General of the Pakistan Rangers, Lt Gen Akbar told that some key leaders of Al Qaida, Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and other proscribed organisations were among 1,474 terrorists and 9,053 hitmen who were arrested during the operation. Majority of the proscribed outfits terrorists are Deobandis and Wahhabis.


Some of them confessed to have killed hundreds of people while some others told the investigating officials that each of them had murdered two to three persons. Besides, he said, the Rangers arrested 438 extortionists and 115 kidnappers.

On his recommendation, he said, the chief minister decided to launch an operation against drug mafia and those who were involved in sectarian killings under the garb of religion.

The Rangers DG said some people had made the communities hostage by installing barriers on streets and roads which the Rangers got removed. He said the number of targeted killings in the city in Nov 2012 was 75 which dropped to 29 in Nov 2013 and 12 in Nov 2015, while there were nine targeted killings during the last month. He added: “Karachi can be made more secure if proper capacity building of the police is made.”

Appreciating the efforts of the relevant authorities, outgoing Corps Commander Lt Gen Mukhtar who is to assume charge as DG of the ISI, said the best achievement of the Karachi operation was the change in the life of common man. The results of the joint efforts of the government, the army, the Rangers, police and intelligence agencies were very much clear on the ground for which the apex committee deserved a lot of appreciation, he said.

He added: “We have travelled a long distance and cannot return without ensuring sustainable peace in the city.”The corps commander said this operation would be more successful if the police were strengthened. He appreciated the chief minister for recruiting around 12,000 policemen on merit. “Today I along with IG Police A.D. Khwaja visited the training centres where newly recruited policemen were receiving army training. I found the police jawan energetic and vibrant and their morale was high,” he said. “If the police force is expanded with the appointment of 20,000 policemen on merit, the image and performance of the police would speak loudly,” he added.

Lt Gen Mukhtar also said that operation against drug mafia was need of hour and strict action against street crime be initiated but with proper planning.

He said that why the city had turned into a violent city must also be probed. “We must learn from our mistakes and should resolve not to repeat those mistakes again,” he added. He appreciated the effective role the former chief minister, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, former governor Dr Ishratul Ibad and former chief secretary and other officers had played in implementing apex committee decisions.

Also, the corps commander lauded the chief minister for convening the special meeting to sum up the performance of the present apex committee and set new targets of operation with new vigour. “I would be supporting you from the position which I would take over,” he vowed.

Senior minister Nisar Khuhro said Karachi was being focused and termed a dangerous city of the world but with the grace of God and collective work of civil and military leadership this city turned peaceful.

Later, the chief minister presented the traditional Sindhi cap, Ajrak and other gifts to the corps commander and the Rangers DG as this was the last apex committee meeting that the two officers had attended in their current positions.
