ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Saturday said that there was no need to conduct any ‘grand operation’ in Karachi, DawnNews reported.

Malik said that only 15-20 miscreants were responsible for the deteriorating law and order situation in the city and would be caught soon by authorities.

The interior minister alleged that the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) was involved in spreading violence in Karachi, adding that LeJ members flee to Rahim Yar Khan or Dera Ghazi Khan after committing crimes in the city.

Speaking at a ceremony in Islamabad, the interior minister said that the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) played a major role in fighting against terrorism.

Malik also praised the role of the Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani in fighting terrorism.

Moreover, he said that he had successfully completed the duty assigned to him, adding that he would be happy to help, should the new government require his assistance.
