KARACHI  – The Supreme Court has deferred the verdict in the Karachi violence case. A five-judge bench, led by Justice Anwar Zahir Jamali, took up the case for hearing on Monday at its Karachi registry. The Election Commission, Rangers, Revenue Department, jail authorities and Sindh Police chief presented their respective reports to the court. An interim order was to be issued in the case, but all the justices could not sign it, therefore, the decision to render the interim order was deferred. It may be recalled that the bench had expressed dissatisfaction over the implementation process of its directives last month and gave remarks on many occasions that its directives were not complied with. The court had directed the election commission secretary to consult the political parties about redrawing of electoral constituencies and submit a report. The court had also sought a report about fitness of the 3,000 vehicles. Banning the transfer of state land, the court had summoned record of state land transferred after assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto. New arms license policy was also presented in the court. The court had directed the Sindh IGP to set up a cell to forge coordination between police and rangers and collect the record about the apprehension and custody of the culprits.
