KARACHI (92 News) - Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed said on Thursday that the Centre and Sindh will together fight the menace of bandits in the province.

The interior minister said during a meeting with Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah. They discussed the prevailing law and order situation in the province as well as the ongoing anti-bandit operation in Shikarpur at length. The interior secretary, Sindh chief secretary and provincial police chief were also in attendance in the meeting.

On the occasion, Murad Ali Shah said the law and order situation in Karachi had also worsened with several localities turned into no-go areas for citizens, he maintained.

The CM said the entire province from Guddu to Kotri Barrage comprises riverine areas with forests stretching over six kilometres. On May 23, police recovered eight hostages from the katcha area in Shikarpur, he pointed out.

CM Murad said that bandits attacked the police personnel after the armoured personnel carriers (APCs) they were in broke down, as a result of which two cops were martyred.

“Your are the interior minister. You can come here whenever you want,” the chief minister was reported as telling Sheikh Rasheed. “We will work together and we welcome you in Sindh.”

Sheikh Rasheed assured Murad of extending all possible cooperation saying the Rangers are at the provincial government’s disposal and it can utilize the services of the paramilitary force for the anti-dacoit operation. He asked the CM to book bandits under terrorism clauses.
