Rangers killed an innocent young man in karachi

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has started hearing the case on sue moto notice today on Friday involving Rangers killing the young boy in Karachi.

The SC on Thursday has taken suo moto notice of cold blooded killing of a young man by Rangers and summoned DG Rangers Sindh, provincial Chief Secretary, IGP Sindh and Provincial and Federal Home Secretaries for today’s hearing.

Five-member larger bench of the SC headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary is hearing the case.

While hearing the case, Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry said that Rangers are involved in target killing instead of stopping it.

Federal Interior Secretary told the court that Rangers are under the control of Sindh administration and the deployment notification is revised after 3 months.

The CJP has asked to submit the Rangers deployment notification in the court.

It is pertinent to mention here that Rangers on late Wednesday night killed an unarmed youth after arresting him in Karachi. Two rangers officials were named in FIR of murder who were handed over to the police on Friday morning.
