Karachi

Fearing fallout of the ongoing Karachi operation, Sindh’s recently reappointed home minister has set up a camp office at the Central Police Office (CPO).

A few days ago Suhail Anwar Khan Siyal had told the media that he had decided to establish a camp office at the CPO.

On Thursday a letter was moved to the relevant quarters, including provincial police chief IGP AD Khowaja, for providing the minister with a working space at the CPO.

The letter stated: “I am directed to refer to the subject captioned ‘Camp Office for Minister Home’ and to inform you that the Honourable Minister for Home, Agriculture, Supply & Prices and Mines & Minerals has approached the General Administration Wing of the SGA&CD to declare the office of the Additional IG, Central Police Office Karachi as ‘Camp Office’ for Minister for Home due to security reasons.

“In this connection, I am further directed to inform that due to the prevailing law and order situation in the province, especially in Karachi, owing to the ongoing ‘Targeted Operations’ against terrorism, the existing office of Home, Agriculture and Mines & Minerals presently situated in Barracks, Pakistan Secretariat is quite unsafe and exposed to serious threats.

“I am accordingly directed to request your good self to kindly declare the old office of Addl IG Karachi located at the CPO Karachi as ‘Camp Office for Home Minister’ with adequate deployment of security personnel to ensure foolproof security of the Honourable Minister. An early action in this regard will highly be appreciated.”

Police sources said the renovation work of the camp office had started, adding that in the coming week the provincial home minister would start using the office at the CPO.
