    Deweaponising Karachi

    by Ikram Sehgal


    The Rangers-led ‘targeted operation’ to restore peace to the city under the direction of the Sindh government commenced on a low-key level – a number of ‘suspects’ taken into custody and some arms and ammunition seized. It remains to be seen whether putting the operation into high gear will make an improvement since the lawlessness continues as before in public perception.

    The Rangers have only a limited, determined and surgical role; tasking them alone for the long run could be fraught with risk. Under no conditions should the army get embroiled in Karachi under Article 245. That would be an invitation to disaster. While the Rangers have the wherewithal for urban area operations and the determination to do so, the ultimate responsibility for law and order in the city must rest with the Sindh Police, they must not be sidelined. Theirs is the constitutional responsibility to exercise the law-enforcement infrastructure of the city.

    A very fine police officer, Additional IG Shahid Hayat, has taken over as CCPO Karachi. While he has set about making changes, he has his work cut out for him. His immediate challenge is to restore the morale within the rank and file. While the politicisation of the police force over the last two decades has been horrendous, far more dangerous was that their different political bosses encouraged ‘criminalisation’ across the board.

    Shahid Hayat’s team cannot accomplish miracles. However, given a clear mandate to implement rule of law without interference from their political and bureaucratic bosses they can certainly do some good. The federal government must review the credentials of all Sindh Police officers who were reverted to their parent departments by the Supreme Court because of irregularities committed by various political governments. Their experience can be invaluable in the ongoing process.

    For the moment Ch Nisar Ali Khan, the federal interior minister seems to be coping. A level-headed person, Ch Nisar is engaged in initiating reforms in law-enforcement entities in an organised manner. He is a sea change from his predecessor. Rehman Malik, more than anyone else, created havoc with the peace of the city with his ‘voodoo’ brand of politics, reducing this once bustling metropolis into a virtual state of anarchy.

    The big challenge is that the MQM contests the transparency of the ongoing process. The key to success is that the perception of even-handedness must be firmly established in the minds of the people. To protect against excesses the government is creating a ‘Public Safety Commission’ (PSC) for oversight on the operations. Armed with powers of an ombudsman duly mandated by law, the PSC should be empowered to take all actions necessary to stop infringement of fundamental rights of the common citizen.

    The PML-N’s Zahid Hamid, assisted by some legal eagles who have Karachi experience, is putting the final touch to laws amending Article 245 of the constitution for a specified period to empower civil armed forces and give them the same legal cover as the army, the amendment renewable if required.

    Karachi’s deweaponisation will not only halt lawlessness but also put an end to the proliferating terrorism that is hurting Karachi economically, socially, culturally, and above all psychologically. In which other city in the world do citizens run around freely toting weapons? Even dozens of such trumpeted operations will not rid us of the menace of criminality and terrorism if deweaponisation is not ensured.

    Armed guards without uniforms are a common sight; hundreds are seen at functions outside hotels, wedding halls, etc. The number of weapons in Karachi, legal and illegal, must run into the millions. How does one differentiate whether a man carrying a gun is a law enforcer or a criminal? There have to be very drastic orders for this, the same as for looters.

    Collateral damage is to be expected – it must be accepted. More than 1700 people have been killed by ‘target killing’ in the first six months of 2013 alone. Effective laws must empower the police and the Rangers to not only arrest those found in possession of illegal weapons but to be able to punish them on the spot. Deweaponisation must not become controversial, which could happen if politicised by vested interests.

    Deweaponisation is only one of the logical answers to Karachi’s many ills. Local bodies elections must be held for a workable and democratic local self-government system. Grave apprehension arose in the ruling Muslim League (in West Pakistan) dominated by landlords when the East Bengal Assembly in 1951 voted to end feudalism by abolishing Permanent Settlement and absentee landlordism, imposing ceilings on landholdings and thus making sure that no new feudal landholding was able to crop up.

    Not surprisingly feudals have never allowed meaningful land reform in Pakistan. Without grassroots participation, a defaced version of democracy creates a vacuum ripe for exploitation by both criminals and terrorists. There must be a genuine exercise of executive authority instead of paying mere lip-service to local self-governance.

    Given all the different versions of local self government being bandied about, the Supreme Court must step in to mandate a self-government law to be common all over Pakistan, with only minor adjustments peculiar to each province. The danger of having widely different systems is that it will encourage separatism as the constituent units of the federation become distant to each other. With meaningful participation of the citizens of the community strangers are quickly identified, helping to unearth ‘terrorist safe houses’. The community will ensure that their constituents do not take part or are involved in any criminal or terrorist activity.

    The print and electronic media must conduct a self-critical review of their own performance in the national interest, remaining non-partisan, keeping their objectivity and ethics thereof intact. Freedom cannot be taken as a licence to do anything. Can we allow the integrity of the state and its citizens to be subject to motivated logic?

    The media has been wonderful in raising awareness in people but it cannot continue functioning in a ‘free-for-all’ manner. It can only overcome its internal shortcomings through self-examination and self-regulation. This is all the more necessary in countries like Pakistan where the norms and institutions of democracy are not well-established.

    Peace can only come to this city if the LEAs perform to their capacity. Despite the handicaps imposed upon them, the Rangers and the police have still kept Karachi from descending into anarchy. There are no easy solutions to the problems confronting Karachi today, certainly not if the proposed solution becomes a bigger problem.

    Re: Deweaponising Karachi

    the "operation" is a political move. expecting the ruling party is doing it out of compassion for Pakistan and the people of Karachi is childish dream.

    MQM is a big stakeholder and it has valid reservations. the way the operation was pre-announced and conducted also put a question mark over its intent and success. as if giving an FYI to all terrorists and criminals to move out or go under ground while the "operation" is conducted.

    or actually giving a head-up to more outrageous and audacious terrorist to plan ahead an attack on law enforcement agencies concentrations.

    The SC larger bench, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, passed this direction during the hearing of the Karachi law and order case at the SC’s Karachi registry.

    Chief Justice Chaudhry also questioned why assets of the absconders were not seized.

    Previous hearing

    Yesterday – when the apex court resumed the hearing – it heard applications regarding arms smuggling, witness protection law and the overall security situation.

    The chief justice had inquired from provincial advocate general about the overall law and order situation in Karachi, and progress made during the last three weeks.

    AG Khalid Javed Khan said different steps including reshuffles were made in the department of police, who with the help of Rangers were actively making efforts, conducting operation to improve the law and order situation.

    “The situation is changing now. Perhaps we are taking steps. The federal and provincial governments have expressed the resolve to improve the situation in the city,” he said, adding the CCTV cameras were being made functional.

    The apex court praised the steps taken by the government and noted that finally things had started changing and rolling. “Something in the police department has been removed,” the bench remarked recalling that various officers promoted out-of-turn had been brought down to their original ranks following its order.

    Karachi target killers caught in Murree belong to Sunni Tehreek: DIG



    September 21, 2013

    KARACHI: The target killers caught from Murree have been brought back to Karachi. It was found that these target killers belonged to Sunni Tehreek , DIG South said during a press conference, Express News reported.
    These criminals were also involved in extortion and kidnapping for ransom.

    The operation was carried out by the Punjab Police and Elite forces and took place on Wednesday on Mall Road.
    These target killers reportedly originate from Karachi and had taken refuge in Murree from the targeted operations being carried out in the city.

    Targeted operations in Karachi began on September 5, and since then more than 300 suspects have been arrested.
    The Rangers are leading the operation which, they claim, is being conducted across the city.
    Separately, the police have conducted 975 raids and arrested 1,232 criminals.

    Rangers, police arrest 115 suspects from Karachi in targeted operation

    KARACHI, (SANA): Rangers and police arrested as many as 115 suspects during targeted operations conducted in different areas of the city on Saturday.

    According to Rangers and police officials, the operation was conducted in Dhani Bux Goth, Surjani Town, Merowel, Hussain Hazara Goth, Afghan Camp, Jamshed Quarters and Machhar Colony.

    Weapons, looted money, mobile phones, high-roof, motorcycles and drugs were also recovered from the arrested suspects.

    According to the police, during a snap checking near Karachi Arts Council, the police randomly ordered a car to halt to seek identification of the passengers and the registration of the vehicle. Upon this the driver tried to break through the picket but was forced to bring the car to a screeching halt after seeing so many government guns pointing at him.

    According to police it appeared that the occupants of the car also tried to put up an armed resistance but later decided otherwise. Allegedly they surrendered after a brief encounter.

    Subsequent interrogation revealed that three of the four travelers were kidnappers, while the fourth one was an abductee, a manager of a local commercial bank, who they were moving to another place.
    The arms laid down by the kidnappers and the car they were driving have been impounded. The abducted bank manager was unhurt during the standoff.

    According to details the kidnappers had so far hooked Rs 600,000 as ransom from the banker’s family while they were demanding another Rs1.5 million for setting the snatched man free.

    Another six of their accomplices were also copped later from Lasbela after the investigators succeeded in cracking the held kidnappers.
    Moreover, the police, in Nazimabad No.3, booked two alleged outlaws who also surrendered firearms.

    On the other hand Rangers extended their targeted-operation to Gulisan-e-Jauhar and North Karachi, which yielded around 12 suspects. The suspects have been shifted to the undisclosed location.

    Rangers arrest six Lyari gang-members

    KARACHI: Rangers and police on Tuesday arrested six dangerous crooks involved in the Lyari gang war, along with more than 60 other suspects, DawnNews reported.

    Rangers personnel carried out targeted operations in different parts of the city, including areas of Haryana Colony, Afshani Gali, Gabol Park, Model Colony, Lyari, New Karachi, Frontier Colony, Gul Plaza and Jamali Goth.

    Six suspects involved in Lyari gang war were arrested during the targeted operations, while 35 other suspects were also arrested. Weapons were also confiscated by the Rangers during the operations.

    Police forces also claim to have confiscated weapons and other stolen goods during the operations. According to the police, the suspects had been involved in street crimes and other robberies.

    Karachi, the largest metropolitan city of Pakistan, is riddled with targeted killings, gang wars, kidnappings for ransom, extortion and terrorism. Targeted operations are ongoing in Karachi under a directive issued by the federal government led by Rangers’ forces with the support of police against criminals already identified by federal military and civilian agencies.

    Karachi police arrest MQM activist in Randhawa killing case




    KARACHI: Karachi police chief Shahid Hayat has said a man suspected of involvement in the killing of Naimat Ali Randhawa, a lawyer involved in the Wali Babar murder case, has been arrested on Tuesday.

    Speaking to a press conference, Hayat named the suspect as one Kazim Abbasi Rizvi and said he was associated with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement's Unit 178.

    The senior lawyer was shot dead in an attack in the city’s Nazimabad area on Thursday that also left his lawyer son injured.

    Hayat was asked whether Randhawa's killing had a sectarian dimension, responding to which, the police chief said the lawyer's killing was of a political, not sectarian, nature.

    Meanwhile, rejecting Hayat’s claim, MQM leader Senator Haider Abbas Rizvi has demanded for an impartial probe into the ‘allegations.’

    The revelation came in the wake of yet another row between the MQM, and the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in Sindh over an operation that has seen a former MQM lawmaker and activists being arrested.

    The MQM has dubbed the operation as one-sided action against its office bearers.

    Wali Khan Babar, a journalist who worked for a private television channel, was gunned down in January 2011 in Liaquatabad area of the port city.

    Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah had recently told a press conference that one of the witnesses in the Babar murder case was still alive and was being given ample security.

    Karachi, a sprawling port city on the Arabian Sea and economic hub of Pakistan, has long been beset by religious, sectarian and ethnic strife. Here armed wings of political parties battle for control of the city, Sunnis and Shias die in tit-for-tat sectarian killings, and Taliban gunmen attack banks and kill police officers.

    Karachi raids: Six ‘TTP men’ killed in encounters



    MIRANSHAH / KARACHI:

    Six alleged militants of the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan were killed in two encounters with the police and the Rangers in Karachi on Wednesday.

    A large cache of weapons and 200kg of explosives were also recovered, officials claim.

    The Tuesday night encounter was carried out on a tip-off, according to anti-extremist cell (AEC) of the Crime Investigation Department (CID).

    “We had information that terrorists were smuggling explosives from Balochistan. Law-enforcement agencies intercepted a car near Lucky Pahari on Hub River Road. When we tried to stop them, they attacked with heavy weaponry,” AEC incharge, Deputy Superintendent Police (DSP) Chaudhry Aslam Khan, told The Express Tribune.



    Two police officers and four ‘terrorists’ were injured in the exchange of fire. They were taken to Civil Hospital where all four suspects died, officials said.

    The officials also claim to have seized 200 kg of explosive materials, detonators and weapons.

    “We have foiled a major terrorist attack in Karachi,” DSP Khan said. He added that some militants managed to escape.

    DSP Khan said the terrorists were from the Mohmand group of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). “The chief and the deputy chief of the group were killed in the encounter.”

    Separately, two more alleged TTP militants were killed during an encounter with the Rangers and the police in Manghopir, one of the no-go areas in the city.



    According to Pakistan Rangers, Sindh, a targeted raid was carried out on a hideout of one of TTP’s splinter groups.

    “Two suspected militants were killed in an exchange of fire,” said the Rangers spokesperson.

    Weapons including sub-machine guns, pistols and grenades were seized from them.

    The two terrorists were part of a group who had arrived in the city to carry out attacks against government and military installations, according to the Rangers spokesman.

    TTP calls scholars

    Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) central spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid asked religious clerics and scholars to condemn the killing of four TTP members in Karachi and take notice of the issue.

    None of the government officials have contacted the TTP for negotiations, he added.

    Shahid said the government should first announce a truce and stop drone attacks, then the TTP would announce a ceasefire.

    More gang members caught

    The police arrested at least nine alleged target killers and extortionists belonging to the MQM and Lyari gang war in separate raids on Wednesday.

    Two of the suspects, Fida Hussain and Mehboob Ali, are affiliated with the MQM.

    Three alleged members of a Lyari gang were also apprehended in a separate raid, DIG Odho informed the media.

    Separately, Karachi police’s Special Investigation Unit (SIU) claimed to have arrested three suspects belonging to Lyari’s Shahid Bikkik gang.

    SIU chief SP Naveed Khawaja told a press conference that the arrested suspects were involved in more than 45 cases of extortion, adding that they had recently attacked the ice-cream parlour owned by President Mamnoon Hussain’s nephew.

    Meanwhile, the police and Rangers conducted a joint operation in the Gadap area from where an abducted boy was found, it was reported.
