KARACHI: Pakistan’s Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has lauded the efforts of Rangers and police in bringing back peace in Karachi, said a statement issued by Sindh Rangers on Monday.

Karachi, the largest metropolitan city and economic capital of Pakistan, is riddled with targeted killings, gang wars, kidnappings for ransom, extortion and terrorism.

Targeted operations led by Rangers’ forces with the support of police are ongoing in the city under a directive issued by the federal government against criminals already identified by federal, military and civilian agencies.

The statement came after his visit to Headquarters Pakistan Rangers Sindh today, where he was received by DG Rangers Sindh, Maj-Gen Rizwan Akhtar and introduced to sector commanders and senior staff officers.

Gen Kayani was given a detailed briefing on the operational and administrative aspects of Pakistan Rangers Sindh with special reference to the current operation against criminals and anti-social elements in Karachi.

Appreciating its efforts, he hoped the paramilitary force will live up to its “rich tradition of bravery and sheer professionalism and will surely bring back peace and exemplary law and order in the city.”

He also appreciated achievements of Karachi Police during the current targeted operation.

Corps Commander Lt-Gen Muhammad Ijaz Chaudhry accompanied the chief of army staff during the visit.
