ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that the Pakistan Army will undertake a major role in the recruitment of Karachi Police from now on.

While disclosing details of deliberations on law and order in Karachi, Nisar said that the army was already playing a role in building the capacity of police and other law enforcement agencies across the country.

“The army will assist in ensuring merit-based recruitment and training, besides playing a role in equipping them with light arms,” he added, noting that around 2,000 ex-servicemen would also be recruited in the police.

He went on to say that security cameras would be installed in the metropolis for better surveillance.

Claiming that terrorists were fast losing space, he said the killing of Amjad Sabri and the kidnapping of the son of the Sindh High Court chief justice (CJ) were a challenge to the security and intelligence agencies. He vowed to trace and punish Sabri’s killers and safely recover the chief justice’s son.

Nisar also refuted the rumors that a former president was involved in the kidnapping of the SHC CJ’s son.
