KARACHI: Katchhi Rabta Committee KRC has appealed to the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, IGP Sindh, Corps Commander Karachi and DG Rangers to take notice of brutal killings of Lyari people at the hand of a criminal mafia.

Staging a protest at Karachi Press Club along with the coffin of their recently slain activist in Lyari on Thursday, the KRC members chanted slogans against the PAC and demanded authorities to take stern action against the culprits, which they charged belonged to rival Peoples Aman Committee PAC.

They said that they had been staging sit-ins in Keamari, Malir, Ibrahim Hyderi, Dalmia, and other areas of the city in order to register their protest against the continuous killings of innocent people of Lyari by armed gangsters.

Dozens of people have been killed and several others injured in last three days of violence in Lyari but police is hesitating from registering cases against the culprits, they regretted.
