Karachi: 93 law enforcers fell prey to violence this year
KARACHI: Even the law enforcers are not safe in Karachi as target killings have claimed the lives of at least 93 police and Rangers officers so far this year, SAMAA reported. According to unofficial data, firing incidents since January 2012 have left 88 policemen and five Rangers men dead in Karachi as the provincial authorities failed to curb the drive-by attacks motivated by political, ethnic and sectarian hatred. Seven policemen were gunned down in January; four in Feb; nine in March; 11 in April; three in May; 6 in June; 12 in July; seven in August; 14 in Sept and 15 in October, according to the break up. Five Rangers men also fell prey to the unabated violence in Karachi, the capital of Sindh and the country’s economic hub.
