Corps commander Karachi directs Rangers to continue Opt against criminals
KARACHI (APP) - Corps Commander Karachi, Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar on Thursday visited Rangers headquarters where he briefed over Wednesday’s raid on MQM headquarters, Nine Zero.
Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar was briefed by Rangers Director General (DG) Major General Bilal Akbar over law and order situation in backdrop of the raid.
The corps commander also inspected arms recovered from MQM office.
Sources said Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar appreciated Rangers role in maintaining peace in Karachi, affirming that operation against criminals would continue indiscriminately.

On Wednesday, paramilitary Rangers raided the offices, seizing a "huge quantity" of weapons and arresting several criminals, including one convicted of murdering TV journalist Wali Babar.

The raid sparked an angry response from MQM whose leader Altaf Hussain claimed that the security personnel brought weapons and ammunitions ‘wrapped in blankets’ with them and then claimed recovery from there.

MQM claimed that its worker, Ali Shah, 25, was killed in firing by Rangers. However, spokesman of the security forces denied the charge.
