Karachi cops told to halt crackdown against unvaccinated citizens
KARACHI – Karachi police have been directed to halt action against unvaccinated citizens, as 38 people, who did not possess Covid vaccination certificates, were arrested following the stern directives.
Reports quoting sources said Additional Inspector General Karachi Imran Yaqoob Minhas has directed all personnel to stop the crackdown against the unvaccinated citizens.
He said that he came to know about the arrests made by cops against the unvaccinated citizens on roads. Clarifying the directives, he said the orders were issued for restaurants, hotels, wedding halls, and private gatherings as citizens were barred to enter without inoculation.
AIG mentioned that cops were not deployed to spread the fear among citizens only to enforce the COVID-induced SOPs.
Earlier, Sindh's chief secretary also expressed reservations over the stern directive saying the law enforcement personnel were not taking an interest in checking vaccination cards in the country’s largest metropolis.
