KARACHI: Corps Commander Karachi Lieutenant-General Naveed Mukhtar called on Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad Khan on Friday to discuss the law and order situation in the metropolis.

Matters related to the ongoing targeted operation in Karachi, implementation on the decisions of apex Committee and overall law and order in the city were discussed in the meeting held between Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, reported Radio Pakistan.

During the meeting, the corps commander appreciated the decision of establishing ten more anti-terrorism courts in Karachi.

Lt Gen Mukhtar later met Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad Khan at the Governor House where the two discussed issues related to the National Action Plan and security situation in Karachi.

The security concerns facing educational institutions and the future course of action regarding the issue also came under discussion during the meeting, official sources told DawnNews.

The meetings come two days after Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Gen Raheel Sharif met heads of intelligence apparatuses of the armed forces, the corps commander and the Sindh Rangers chief at the Corps Headquarters Karachi.

In a statement issued after the high-level huddle, the COAS “vowed to go to any length” for peace in Karachi, sending out a message that there would be no let-up in the Rangers-led operation in the city.
