Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday condemned the terrorist attack on the Karachi Police Office (KPO). Taking to Twitter, he said: “Once again our brave police were targeted”.
He pointed out that the sudden spike in terrorism especially in the midst of urban centres “reflects a failure of intelligence & the State’s lack of a clear proactive anti-terrorism policy”.
Strongly condemn the terrorist attack on Karachi Police Office yesterday. Once again our brave police were targeted. The sudden spike in terrorism esp in the midst of urban centres reflects a failure of intelligence & the State’s lack of a clear proactive anti terrorism policy.
His comments come after a group of terrorists stormed the police headquarters in the southern port city of Pakistan. Four people – a Rangers sub-inspector, a police constable and two civilians – were martyred in the attack. All the three terrorists were also killed in the operation launched by Rangers and police to hunt down to them.
