PM Khan calls out Sindh police for utilizing savagery against MQM-P protest

Islamabad -Following an incident of police brutality in Karachi, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday took notice of the violence used by the Sindh police against MQM-P leaders and workers.

“I have taken note of the violence used by Sindh police against MQM’s peaceful protest against Sindh’s LG law, [and] have called for a report from Interior Ministry, Sindh CS [and] Sindh IG,” he wrote on Twitter.


Assuring the party leadership of action against the violence, the premier further said: “Will take necessary action against those responsible after receiving these reports.”

One person lost his life, while several members of the MQM-P, including women, were left injured after Karachi police baton-charged and tear-gassed them during a protest at the city’s Shahrah-e-Faisal on Wednesday.
Earlier, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail also shared a video statement, condemning the “police brutality,” adding that local government should resolve the issue with mutual understanding and dialogue.
