The Sindh government and Karachi administration have abandoned the city to bandits.

Sindh Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Haleem Adil Sheikh made this remark on Saturday as he spoke to the media after offering condolences to the family to Syed Turab Zaidi and Major Saad who were recently shot dead by street criminals during separate robbery bids in the city.

The PTI leader suggested that the street criminals could not operate that freely without bribing the police.

Other leaders of the PTI Agha Arsalan, Advocate Nazirullah Mehsud, Anwar Mehdi and Kashif Zaidi accompanied Sheikh who lamented the deaths of young victims at the hands of street criminals.

He remarked that robbers had been recruited into the police force and called for providing immediate financial assistance to the families of those killed during robberies in 2024.

The Sindh PTI president stated that the nation had supported Imran Khan as people elected the candidates backed by the PTI, but the public mandate was stolen by robbers who handed it over to corrupt and enslaved politicians.

He said the era of injustice would not last long as the PTI’s movement against the theft of the public mandate continued.

He called on the chief justice of Pakistan to take notice of the murders and robberies in Karachi, saying that the public had lost faith in the Sindh government.

He expressed sorrow over the tragic incidents in the city and prayed for the deceased.

Sheikh promised the people of Karachi that he would not abandon them. He maintained that 65 people had been killed in the city during the past three months, and 23 of those were killed during the month of Ramazan and Eid days.
