Press Release
Rawalpindi - June 26, 2016: 

General Raheel Sharif, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) visited Corps Headquarters Karachi this evening. Federal Interior Minster Ch Nisar Ali Khan. NSA Lt Gen Retd Nasser Janjua, Governor and CM Sind, Home Minister Sindh Sohail Anwar Sial, DG  ISI and Corps Comd attended the meeting. Participants were briefed in detail about security situation and various aspects of ongoing operation against terrorists, criminals and their linkages in Karachi.

COAS said that ongoing operation had brought about a noticeable improvement in law and order situation of Karachi. However as we progress to target the crime and terror syndicate network, we need to keep our focus on actionable human and technical intelligence and totally dismantle their support structure. COAS said operation has now entered into a phase where terrorists and their abettors are badly bruised, isolated and hence will go for softer targets so as to find their survival and undermine the society psychologically. COAS instructed all concerned to hunt them and pre-empt their moves to frustrate their designs.

We must continue our mission unabated to consolidate and not let anyone reverse our gains. Expressing his assurance to the people of Karachi the COAS emphasized that the nexus of terrorists, their abettors, sympathizers and financiers will be broken at all cost and ongoing operation will be taken to its logical conclusion. He urged upon all stake holders for earnest endeavors in respective spheres within the overall ‘Whole of the Nation Approach’ for overcoming the menace of terrorism.

He exhorted all commanders including those of security, intelligence and law enforcement agencies to continue working hand in glove and leave no stone unturned for restoration of total peace in the city. Measures to build capacity of other law enforcers were also discussed for lasting peace in the economic hub of the country.
