Cop Killings

With all that’s gone wrong in Karachi of late, a very disturbing trend has largely gone unnoticed – the spate of cop killings in the city. At first I put it down to revenge for the ‘Karachi Operation’ that decimated the ranks of MQM activists in the 90s, but according to this report in Dawn the cops killed in the last week had no association with that notorious operation. Are we witnessing a deadly new phase in the city’s gradual slide towards anarchy?

    A very disturbing trend indeed.
    You said ‘I arrived here at KMB because I noticed it was all to(sic) often overrun by vacuity.’ So your idea of filling this vacuum is to just point us to news reports? News reports that most of us have already read.
    Those were rather presumptous words and I dare say none of your posts (and they have all links) have lived up to those words or brought us and this blog to some other,higher level.
    Oh well, have a good weekend, everyone.

    There are numerous groups active in Karachi, some supported by the state, others working on their own.

    Come to think of it, these all might be a way to payback. We all know the PD of our city, they are not angels, they are worst than thugs/dacoits/ in many cases. And its not very hard to kill a person these days. Without countrymen who lack patience, I dont think its hard to understand the causes of these killings.

    Sheer Revenge.

    (not that I support the killings)
