KARACHI The government has written a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, urging establishment of special courts to try cases against the criminals involved in target killings in Karachi. The traders community of Karachi demanded the establishment of special courts in a meeting with Interior Minister Rehmand Malik. The Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) delegation was led by its president Muhammad Saeed Shafiq which met the minister at CM House on Saturday. Sources said that traders maintained that though the culprits involved in the target killings and extortions were arrested but they did not get convictions from the courts. The businessmen demanded establishment of special trial courts in the city for trying target killers and extortionists. Sources said the Interior Minister informed the trade body leaders that the government had already written a letter to the Chief Justice in this regard. Talking to the traders, the minister said the arrested target killers would be presented before the media within a week. A video of the arrested killers was also watched by the traders, who expressed confidence and satisfaction regarding efforts by the provincial government for curbing the crime and lawlessness. Rehman Malik reiterated that the ongoing targeted action would be continued against the criminals. Meanwhile, the government also announced to establish joint checkposts of Rangers, Frontier Constabulary and coastguards to curb and eliminate the movement of terrorists and smuggling of arms and drugs at Sindh-Balochistan border. The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Rehman Malik at Crisis Management Centre here on Saturday. Addressing the meeting, the Interior Minister said the purpose of establishing the checkposts was to monitor and control the movement of terrorists and check the inter-provincial smuggling of drugs and arms, besides curbing the smuggling of fuel from Iran via Balochistan province into the country.
