SHC orders effective deployment of LEAs in Lyari
Karachi: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday ordered interior and home secretaries and the election commission of Pakistan to ensure full and effective security by deploying of law enforcing agencies in Lyari, particularly in the NA-248 constituency.
A division bench headed by Justice Maqbool Baqar disposed of the petition of a Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader, Sardar Nabil Gabol, seeking deployment of army troops in NA-248 constituency.
In his petition, Gabol submitted that the situation in Lyari was precarious as different militant groups were operating there. He submitted that during the hearing of the Karachi law and order case in the Supreme Court, the SHOs of the Chakiwara, Kalakot and Lyari police stations had clearly stated that ‘no-go areas’ existed in Lyari Town.
The petitioner said that militant groups were ruling the area, as Rangers and police had failed to restore peace to the area. In such a situation, he said, it would be impossible for voters to cast their votes peacefully.
He maintained that the Election Commission of Pakistan’s goal to hold free and fair elections would remain elusive if peace was not restored to the area, particularly in his constituency NA-248.
He asked the court to direct the ECP and the interior ministry to deploy army in Lyari on polling day.
The court directed interior and home secretaries and the election commission to ensure full and effective security by deploying of law enforcing agencies adequately in NA-248 constituency. The court also ordered that security measures may also include patrolling of LEAs around the police stations in order avoid nay untoward incident.
