KARACHI: The Governor of Sindh Dr Ishratul Ibad has said that a huge cache of arms and ammunitions hidden in a water tank of a house in Azizabad neighbourhood of the city earlier this month was bought to fight the Pakistan army.
Speaking to media representatives for a second time on Wednesday, the provincial governor revealed that the law enforcement agencies (LEAs) contained evidence the offensive weapons belonged to an organising committee of a political party in Karachi.
Regarding the ongoing operation in the port city, Dr Ibad repeated that the crackdown against militants and terror elements would continue until the required results were achieved.
He said the culprits behind the May 12, 2007, bloodshed in Karachi during which at least 40 people were killed in armed clashes between political parties on the arrival of the then Chief Justice Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry would soon be brought to justice.
The governor also hinted that the government was close to the killers of Hakim Muhammad Saeed – a famed medical researcher and scholar – who was assassinated in Karachi on October 17, 1998.
