    KARACHI: Some 31,336 alleged criminals have so far been arrested in several targeted operations conducted by police and Rangers personnel since the Karachi operation was launched, states a report on the law and order situation in Karachi during the past few months.

    The report was presented by acting Inspector General Sindh Police Hyder Jamali on Thursday during a high-level meeting of officials from law enforcement agencies.

    Jamali chaired the meeting which also looked at the efficiency of the ongoing operation in Karachi that has been under way for the past 10 months.

    According to the report, during the 1,627 police encounters, some 1,586 suspected of involvement in dacoity, 336 suspected extortionists, 83 'kidnappers', 7,155 fugitives and 590 wanted in murder cases were arrested. The forces also recovered a huge cache of arms and ammunition from the possession of the arrested which includes, 1026 explosive materials, 264 arms and ammunition and a huge quantity of drugs and narcotics.

    Karachi, the largest metropolitan city of Pakistan, is riddled with targeted killings, gang wars, kidnappings for ransom, extortion and terrorism.

    The foreigners, specially certain nationalities must be expelled from Karachi. There are way too many car with foreign number plates roaming freely in troubled areas like Malir, Orangi and Gulshan.
    Karachi was a peaceful city under Musharraf, it must be taken.back from the criminals.
