People responsible for Safora tragedy traced, claims Federal Interior Minister Ch Nisar
KARACHI (92 News) – Federal Minister for Interior Ch Nisar has claimed that people responsible for the Safora tragedy have been traced.
Talking to the media at Governor’s House on Monday, the minister said that the people involved in killing the innocent people have not yet been killed. “Some of them have been killed, while some of them have gone underground.”
“We have made some arrests. Investigations are still going on. It will be premature to say anything at this time. The war against terrorists is not a T20 match, but it is a long battle,” he said.
The minister said that law and order is improving due to steps taken by the Sindh government.
He disclosed that the operation against terrorists was launched in 2014. “Over 10,000 intelligence operations have so far been conducted. Over 36,000 suspects have been arrested,” he said.
Federal Minster for Interior Ch Nisar said that the federal and provincial governments are striving for peace.
“The nation will stay united. We will not backtrack until the elimination of the last terrorist,” he said. “Terrorism has reduced during the PML-N tenure.”
He dispelled the rumours regarding differences between the party and the prime minister. “Intelligence and security agencies are working under the government,” he said.
Earlier, he visited Rangers Headquarters and presided over a high-level meeting.
DG Rangers Major General Bilal Akbar briefed him about the Safoora incident and other acts of terrorism.
On this occasion, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan lauded the role of Rangers in maintaining law and order in Karachi.
He said that the incidents of target killing had reduced in the city due to better performance of Rangers.
He also visited Yadgar-e-Shuhada and offered Fateha.
DG Rangers expressed the resolve that the terrorists would be brought to the justice at all costs.
The interior minister also held separate meetings with Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah in Karachi.
Important issues, including law and order situation in Karachi, were discussed.
