KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that the provincial government is serious to arrest former SSP Rao Anwar to further investigate the Naqeebullah Mehsood murder case.
He said this while talking to media at Hindu Gymkhana where he attended NAPA Convocation 2015-17 as chief guest. He was accompanied by Culture Minister Syed Sardar Shah.
Shah said that it was quite surprising to him that the people were casting doubts on the sincerity of the provincial government in arresting suspended SSP Rao Anwar. “It was PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari who had taken notice of Mehsood’s murder and on his directives inquiry committee was constituted,” he said, adding that the Sindh government is in close contact with all the agencies to arrest former SSP Malir and he would be arrested soon.
The chief minister said that holding of jirgas in the city and participation of people in them is not a good move. He said that the court should take its notice.
CM Shah, replying to another question, said that he would provide foolproof security to PSL final match. “I have given them full support,” he said.
To yet another question, the chief minister said that the performance of NAPA in promoting the soft image of the country is quite encouraging. “The promotion of art and music and its classes here is service to the society,” he said.
Murad Ali Shah said that the city of Karachi has seen lawlessness for two decades. Musical shows, literary festivals, theatre, plays and such other activities had shied away from Karachi and now they are returning with full vigour and spirit.
