Islamabad, Thu, 29 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 29 (ANI): The Sindh government in Pakistan has ordered a judicial inquiry into the violence that erupted in Karachi earlier this week.

At least nine people were killed and scores injured in Pakistan's financial capital Karachi today as a fallout of political violence triggered by the shooting of an MQM leader and his brother by unidentified gunmen.

The gunmen entered the home of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Mansoor Mukhtar at PIB Colony this morning and gunned him down. Mukhtar's brother succumbed to his injuries in hospital while his sister-in-law too was injured, MQM officials said.

Meanwhile, Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Syed Qaim Ali Shah has said that the regime would also start political dialogue for maintaining peace in the city, the Daily Times reports.

According to an official handout, Shah termed the violence triggered by miscreants and criminals as illegal and against the law and aspirations of the masses. He said that the matter and incidents would be thoroughly investigated while it was the responsibility of LEAs to take prompt action against violators and anti-state elements.

Shah said that police and Rangers had made full efforts to control the incidents of violations and had arrested 38 culprits indulged in crime on the spot, when they were torching the vehicles.

He further said that there would be dialogue on political level and all concerned groups would be taken on board so that peaceful atmosphere for Karachi could be ensured. (ANI)
