KARACHI – Launching a crackdown against all violators, Rangers on Tuesday removed the security barriers placed every where in the city but barriers around Pervez Musharraf’s residence and Bilawal House in Karachi are still there, PakistanTribe reported.
DG Rangers Sindh had ordered to remove all the security barrier in three days with the warning of crackdown against violators. After the dead line, Rangers removed the barrier without any discrimination but barriers of Bilawal house and Musharraf residence were still there.
Chief Minister Sindh, in a meeting said that barriers had not been removed from around Bilawal House and Pervez Musharraf residence following the security reasons.
A local English daily quoting its own unknown resources reports that “The Bilawal House has officially been declared the camp office of a president of Pakistan, therefore, please consider it before taking action against the barriers.”
It further states that “There will be no action around Bilawal House in the present circumstances. During the law and order meeting at CM House, the Rangers DG also briefed the chief minister about the deadline for the removal of barriers.”
Earlier in a meeting with DG Rangers, Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah, pointing out the security threats, had said that “In some areas, the barriers were set up to control crime, I think the amount of crime may shoot up again after the removal of barriers. Do you have any plan to counter it? If not, please devise a plan without any delay so that the removal of barriers does not make a difference.” To this, the Rangers DG replied: “We have done our homework and will further strengthen it.”
