Agha dismayed over abrupt rise in law, order incidents


Staff Reporter

President Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI) Agha Shahab Ahmed Khan, while expressing deep concerns over abrupt rise in law & order incidents particularly the target killings and rising street crimes, urged the Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah and Heads of Law Enforcing Agencies (LEAs) to take strictest actions and adopt stringent measures to maintain peace in every nook and corner of Karachi.
In a statement issued, President KCCI pointed out that it took a lot of efforts and sacrifices to restore peace in Karachi after the commencement of Karachi Operation in 2013 which resulted in restoring peace and tranquility to a great extent but it seems that the LEAs have decelerated their activities, providing a perfect opportunity to criminals and target killers to resurface again and fearlessly carry out their heinous crimes which must not be taken lightly or neglected. He was of the opinion that Karachi city, which contributes more than 70 percent revenue to the national exchequer, simply cannot afford any kind of damage to its law & order situation particularly at a time when the economy was in deep crises while the wheels of the industry have also lost pace mainly due to rising cost of doing business, inflation, exorbitant interest rates and sluggishness at the local markets.
