KARACHI: The parliamentary leader of MQM in National Assembly Dr Farooq Sattar has condemned the target killings, money extortion and damage to the properties of Kutchi, Katthia wari, Bohra and other communities in Lyari by the terrorists of the Lyari gang war.

In a statement, he said that Lyari has become the hostage and centre of illegal activities and terrorism since long. The peaceful and commercial areas of Kharadar, Garden, Mithadar, and Ranchor Lane are badly affected and even a common man and labourers are facing severe financial crunch due to the terrorist activities of the Lyari gang war.

The Kutchi, Bohra, Katthia wari and other communities of Lyari are associated with business, labour and fishing professions, they should be given rid of these injustices and atrocities. Dr Farooq Sattar has demanded of caretaker chief minister justice (R) Zahid Qurban Alvi, DG Rangers, IG Sindh and other higher authorities to take concrete steps to improve the law and order situation in Lyari and give protection to the innocent habitants of Lyari from terrorist activities of the Lyari gang war.
