KARACHI: The Supreme court in its short order has summoned Federal Interior secretary and chiefs of Intelligence agencies on March 8 during the hearing of Abbas Town sou moto case on Wednesday, reported AAJ NEWS.

The apex court also ordered to produce a comprehensive report of last eight months.

Earlier today, DG Rangers Major General Rizwan Akhtar appeared before the Supreme court’s Karachi registry and accepted that the forces did not reached the blast’s site fearing clashes.

The Supreme Court has held Rangers equally responsible for the unrest in the largest city of the country.

Chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry during the proceedings said that the court has proof that the police reached four hours late at the site of the Karachi twin blasts.

He further said that incidents of terrorism continued in the city despite the presence of 11,000 Rangers personnel who enjoyed special policing powers.

The court moreover directed to suspend SSP Malir Roa Anwar adding that how a police officer who himself travelled in an armoured personnel carrier (APC) could protect the citizens.

The court ridiculed the performance of provincial government saying that we have pity for Chief minister because he doesn’t know anything..

“Karachi lost 10-15 people daily in target killings but if Inspector General has any shame he would have tendered resignations”, the court remarked.
