    KARACHI (The Express Tribune): In a report submitted to Standing Committee on Interior Affairs, Rangers official Colonel Tahir Mehmood said security forces have destroyed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s network in Karachi beyond repair.

    Rangers submitted a one-year review report to the committee and briefed the members about the operation in which they arrested hundreds of alleged criminals since it started on September 7 last year.

    Giving numbers, Col Mehmood said more than 3,000 targeted operations were carried out in the crime-infested port city and and around 5,500 suspects were rounded up. He said around 2,300 were handed over to the police while more than 4,000 weapons were seized during the raids.

    Col Mehmood informed the committee that land grabbing and street crime do not fall under the jurisdiction of Rangers, however, they have submitted a summary to the premier on how these crimes can be controlled.

    Speaking about targets achieved in Lyari, the Rangers official said incidents of kidnapping and extortion have reduced by 55% since the beginning of the operation. Col Mehmood said the law and order situation improved in the neighbourhood as Rangers have set up pickets in the area.

    Briefing the committee about what transpired on the night of September 24 when Rangers personnel arrested MQM members, Col Mehmood said the security officials went inside party office after their patrol was fired at in Gulshan-e-Maymar. He said Rangers arrested three target killers during the raid and that many of the arrested MQM workers were released soon after.

    how do we know that the police has not let them go after taking bribes or the terror courts wont release them citing unsufficient evidence?

    the security forces should refrain from making such 'broadbrush' statements...

    Catch, Kill and walk away is the only answer in Karachi. Pakistani courts are a joke, no matter how good the police or rangers are most of these scum bags either walk or given light sentences.

    I reckon a few high profile cases being given the death penalty can really help shake-up the hardest of criminals. Its the sense of how easy it is to get away with crime that keeps them doing it so freely. Another thing that really needs to be addressed is the disgusting level of civil-disobedience within the public. Has anyone realized how easily people cross red-lights, drive on the wrong side of the road, offer bribes or disregard the system. No wonder we have such rampant crime, these sorts of things are unheard of here in Australia and that's probably why its such a well functioning country.

    Then if we were to look at an Islamic perspective of this situation, A nations politicians are a direct reflection of its people, we need to change/ uplift / educate the people to get better administration, and certainly a major part of this comes through combating civil disobedience.

    I am guessing the rangers claim is to do with the bad taliban .. nothing / zilch / zero is done to counter the so called good taliban and other religious extremist organisations as they still have a writ in almost one third of karachi suburbs.

    targeted killings continue a .. half or 2/3rds are sectarian killings (mostly shias - govt / religious / social figures)
    some are political activists (mostly MQM workers) & some drug and gang related

    Target operation should now start on MQM supporters.
