KARACHI: Director General (DG) Rangers Major General Bilal Akbar on Monday ordered strict and swift action against miscreants who attacked the offices Geo, ARY, and Samaa in Karachi.
“Nobody would be allowed to disrupt the peace of the city,” said the DG Rangers, according to a press release from the paramilitary law enforcement force.
The Rangers press statement came shortly after MQM workers turned to violence and surrounded the offices of media houses in the city.
Aerial firing was also reported in the violent events that unfolded Monday evening, with at least one person injured in the firing in Zainab market succumbing to his wounds at the hospital.
The protestors also caused damage to shops located in Zainab market in the Saddar area of the city, forcing owners to close shop.
“We are closely monitoring the situation. Those who carried out the attack will be made to pay for every second,” said Maj-Gen Bilal Akbar in his statement.
“Those who take the law into their hands will not be spared,” he said.
