30 August, 2011

KARACHI: Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said he has requested Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani to conduct a judicial inquiry into the allegations, levelled against him by Zulfiqar Mirza on Sunday.

"I have requested the prime minister to conduct a judicial inquiry into the matter," added the minister. He was talking to the media at the State Guest House on Monday after presiding over a meeting on law and order situation in Karachi.

He said he had appealed to the Supreme Court to impose a ban on collection of skins of sacrificial animals and 'Fitrana' by political parties. It will help maintain peace in Karachi, he added. He said the situation in Karachi had improved but "we will remain vigilant and take strict action against those involved in crimes to ensure establishment of permanent peace. If we receive information about the presence of arms or criminals in the office of any political party, strict action will be taken," he warned.

He said a joint interrogation team, led by an SSP, has been formed for investigating into the activities of those who were arrested during the operation. The team will send its report to the home secretary.

The minister said the SHOs would be responsible for maintaining peace in their areas, and in case of their failure, action would be taken against them. He said: "The prime minister assigned me the task of maintaining peace in Karachi, and I will do it to ensure complete success."
