Inquiry will not be biased, says Arbab

Sindh Chief Minister Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim, while expressing satisfaction over the progress towards achieving peace in the city after the May 12 incidents, has said that the credit for this goes to the citizens of Karachi and the government.

Replying to questions of journalists after a book launching ceremony here at the Arts Council, the chief minister said the inquiry into the May 12 incidents will not be biased but it will also identify those responsible for starting the firing.

“There is no restriction on lodging of FIR by heirs of the victims of May 12,” he said. Dr Arbab said it is not right to say that weapons were taken back from the police on May 12 and added that large number of administrative staff and police personnel were deployed at the air port for the safety of the chief justice.

Answering another question regarding Asfandyar’s arrival to Karachi, he said like others he (Asfandyar) is also desirous of promotion of peace in the city and that is why he has come to the metropolis. “Altaf Hussain has done nothing wrong and there is no excuse on which the UK government could initiate any action against him,” Dr Arbab said.
