Karachi:Gunmen kill PML-N leader, father

KARACHI: Unknown assailants shot dead a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz local leader and his father in the early hours of Wednesday as gory incidents of targeted killings continued to haunt the port city, home to at least 20 million people and commercial hub of the nation.

 

Geo News quoted a senior police official as saying, gunmen opened fire on a vehicle in Defence Phase VII area, killing Mian Taimur, Joint Secretary of the Nawaz Sharif-led party and his father Mian Arbab.

 

The bodies were shifted to a private hospital where a large number of PML-N activists gathered and protested the double murder.

 

PML-N Sindh chapter leaders Saleem Zia and Nihal Hashmi condemned the killing of the party leader.

 

Angry protesters took to the streets and burnt tyres, blocking roads near Kalapul. Some of the protesters were seen firing shots in the air. When asked whether the party would request the workers to remain peaceful over the killing, Saleem Zia and Nihal Hashmi said although they would definitely do so , it was very hard to obey such request in the aftermath of such an horrific incident.

 

Earlier on Tuesday, at least 13 people lost their lives in the ongoing spate of targeted killings. Police and Rangers have failed in brining the law and order situation under control.

We need martial law in Karachi till elections are over and new governament takes over. Also the people of Karachi have to vote out the present governament in the next elections as they have failed to deliver.

Alliance of PPP, MQM and ANP results in such things to upset PML(N).

Unfortunately, our leaders with agrarian backgrounds inhabit the government. Self preservation wadera/choudhary style haunts all their actions. The PMLN has only one aim in its polity, which is to destabilize Karachi through 'hook or by crook.' Unfortunately, this leads to bloodshed and with e weak legal system and politicized police, the urbanites can only expect more trouble and retrogressive policies. DO NOT VOTE FOR PMLN. Salams 2013

IF THE KARACHI RULING PARTY AND THE GOVERNOR SIND CAN NOT MANAGE - WHY ARE THEY NOT ACCOUNTABLE? THEY ALL SHOULD BE FIRED? CURFEW AND MARTIAL LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED IN THIS CITY AND OPERATION SHOULD BE TAKEN AGAINST THE TERRORIST. ALL PARTIES SHOULD BE BANNED IN THIS CITY. LEADERS SHOULD BE BANNED FROM COMMUNICATION AND BE BROUGHT TO PAKISTAN.

The city is controlled by animals,anybody can kill anybody and get lost in the crowd never to be caught.Arms are easily available and people have forgotten to be tolerant.The army chief just a few weeks ago said that the Rangers are doing a good job in Karachi and the army is not needed.Is this a good job that they are doing chief?And it seems strange that law and order situation in Karachi is not a priority of the Zardari government.
