KARACHI: Speaking to media representatives in Karachi, Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Saturday said that every murder case cannot be termed as an incident of target killing.
The minister said security had now been beefed up around Karachi’s Shershah scrap market and a covert operation had been initiated against criminals in the aftermath of the latest killings in the city.
Malik said several criminals involved in the recent killings had been arrested. He further vowed to take the offenders to task without discrimination.
Responding to a question regarding US Ambassador Cameron Munter’s recent defence of drone attacks, Malik said the strikes violated Pakistan’s sovereignty and security and that the government was involved in negotiations with the US on the issue.
