Karachi, May 20 (ANI): Violence once again returned to Karachi with at least 18 persons, including a four year old boy, being murdered in a wave of ethnic and political killings across the city.

It is worth mentioning here that the killings took place just a day after all coalition parties vowed to work together to establish peace in the city as well as in the whole Sindhrovince.

Meanwhile, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has directed all law enforcement agencies to take concrete steps to check the widespread violence.

He asked the Karachi city administration to keep a tight vigil on miscreants and increase the deployment of security officials and Rangers across the country's financial capital.

"Some miscreants are out to disturb the law and order situation in Karachi for ulterior motives and their designs would be foiled by the coalition parties with the cooperation of citizens," The Dawn quoted Shah, as saying.

Shah also met a delegation of the Awami National Party, led by Amin Khattak, and assured the leaders that persons behind the killings would be nabbed soon.

Provincial Home Minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza and Karachi police chief Wasim Ahmad were also present during the meeting. (ANI)
