SC moved against target killings

SC moved against target killings
Karachi
A human rights activist has filed a petition in Supreme Court against the targeted killings and worsening law and order situation in the city.
Syed Iqbal Kazmi, a representative of Human Rights Commission for South Asia, submitted that he had filed two separate petitions in Sindh High Court against the targeted killing of political activists and other citizens and for holding judicial probe of such incidents but despite several directions to federal and provincial governments for filing comments on the petitions, both the governments failed to file comments on the petitions before the court.
He said that his petitions were pending in SHC but no protection has been provided to citizens as enshrined in the Constitution, as hundreds of people had been killed in incidents of violence that have been continuing for over two years in different parts of the city. He prayed the court that his petition be either heard by the Supreme Court itself or transferred to other High Court as there was no likelihood that his petition would be heard and decided by the SHC in near future.
