KARACHI: The Supreme Court expressed its dissatisfaction on Thursday over a report submitted by the Sindh government on implementing the court’s orders in the Karachi law and order case, DawnNews reported.

During Thursday’s hearing of the case which was being heard in the apex court’s Karachi registry, the bench pointed out that their written order had specifically mentioned that those involved in the city’s violence were being sponsored by political parties.

The bench, headed by Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja, asked the Sindh advocate-general to submit in writing before the court that he was ‘helpless’ as far as political parties’ involvement in Karachi violence was concerned.

While asking the Sindh advocate general to acknowledge political parties’ involvement, Justice Khawaja further said that months had passed but Karachi’s law and order situation had shown no improvement whatsoever.

The deputy attorney general, however, pointed out that improving the security situation in Karachi was the job of the provincial government, not the federal government.
