KARACHI: The Sindh government on Thursday decided to form a commission so that it could compensate the families of those who became victims of target killings in Karachi, DawnNews reported.

The Supreme Court in its order had directed the provincial government to compensate the affected families.

In a summary sent to the Chief Minister House, the Sindh home department said the chief of the commission would be nominated once the commission was constituted.

The ministry moreover recommended the name of former judge of Sindh High Court Allah Dino Metlo.

The commission would pay Rs 50,000 to each family of the victims. It would also conduct interviews of the families and of concerned police officials.
