ISLAMABAD - Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has claimed that neither any foreign agency, including the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), is operating in Pakistan nor anyone will be allowed to operate in the country. Supreme Courts verdict on the cases of Saleem Shahzad and Sarfraz Shah would be implemented, the minister said while talking to media persons outside the Parliament House on Saturday. He said drug and land mafias are responsible for unrest in Karachi. Those involved in Karachi unrest will be taken to task, he vowed as he said the Rangers, including former Rangers DG, have played an important role to control targeted killings and crime in Karachi. Rangers were deployed in Karachi on the request of Sindh government to assist the police force. The police strength was not enough to control the law and order situation in Sindh. It will be unfair to blame the whole Rangers personnel for individuals action, he said while referring to Sarfaz Shahs gruesome murder by some Rangers men. He said all the check posts in the capital have been restored and the policemen deployed at the check posts have been directed to check people without any discrimination. During last 5 months, 48 police officers have lost their lives in the Karachi violence, he said, urging the media to portray the brave soldiers as heroes, he said. The government will take all possible measures to protect the live and propriety of the people, he said. The minister while condemning the murder of journalist Saleem Shahzad said that the intelligence and law enforcement agencies should not be criticised without any justification. He claimed that timely reporting about 1,100 cases by the agencies saved the country from terrorists activities. The data of Saleem Shahzads cell phone was not erased and it cannot be deleted, he claimed. The murder case was in the Supreme Court and its verdict would be obeyed, he added. Replying to a question, he said Pakistan is a sovereign state and the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is neither conducting any operation inside the country nor it will be allowed to do so. He said no foreign agency would be allowed to operate in any area of the country. No compromise would be made on national security, he said, adding that foreigners residing illegally in Pakistan are being expelled. Over 5,000 passports, which were stolen from Karachi office, were cancelled to avoid the possibility of these passports falling into wrong hands, he said. Investigation of the theft was underway, he added. When asked about former Sindh Home Minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, he said he (Mirza) is a brave man and he respects him. To a question, he said that Islamabad IGP would be appointed soon.
