ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Thursday took notice of the police’s action against MQM-P protesters and sought a report from the concerned authorities.
A day earlier, one person had lost his life, while several members of the MQM-P, including women, were left injured after Karachi police baton-charged and tear-gassed them during a sit-in outside the CM House.
Taking to Twitter, PM Imran said, “I have taken note of the violence used by Sindh police against MQM's peaceful protest against Sindh's LG law, & have called for a report from Interior Ministry, Sindh CS & Sindh IG.”
The prime minister maintained that he will take necessary action against the responsible after receiving the inquiry reports.
