It is unfortunate to see that the police have entirely failed to maintain law and order in Karachi, where at least ten people are dying every day, as a result of target killings, crimes and terrorist attacks. It is the rangers who are depended upon, whenever situation spins out of control in Karachi. The police seem to be rather helpless in this dire situation and are out of the picture. My question as a concerned citizen to the authorities is that for how long the police in Karachi will remain dysfunctional and when are measures going to be taken to address this issue?
