ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Tuesday said the media should not label any and every murder in Karachi as a target killing.
No murder should be labelled as a target killing unless CCPO Karachi confirms it, television reports quoted Malik as saying.
Malik said 25 suspected terrorists had been apprehended from Karachi this month.
Speaking to media representatives, Malik said an attempt to transport a large quantity of illegal arms to Karachi was foiled by law enforcement agencies.
Malik said arms were being brought to Pakistan from Afghanistan and that the government had lodged a written protest with the government of Afghanistan on the issue.
Responding to a question regarding Karachi, Malik ruled out a military operation in Karachi. He, however, said that the army would be sent wherever the need arises.
