Sindh High Court (SHC) has been moved to bring an immediate halt to the ongoing operation in Lyari. The petition has been taken up for hearing.

The division bench consisting of Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Mehmood Akhtar will hear today the plea against Lyari operation.

The plea was filed by Advocate Salahud Din Gandapur requested the court to immediately hear the case.

The petitioner is of the view that Lyari operation is causing immense troubles to common citizens; hence, the operation should instantly be stayed.

Seeking an immediate judicial order against Lyari operation, the plea furthermore states it is legally a crime to hold citizens hostages; accordingly, the illegitimate operation should summarily be discontinued
