KARACHI: Life in Karachi remained at a standstill on Saturday as businesses and offices remained shut and traffic remained off the roads as fear and panic that had set in on Friday evening lasted today, Daily Sitara Sindh reported.

On Friday, routine life in Karachi, Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas had come to a halt following intermittent firing by unidentified youths who wanted to ensure a complete closure.

In Karachi, the areas of North Karachi, Gulistan-i-Jauhar, Gulshan-i-Iqbal, Malir, Jahangir Road, Nazimabad as well as Saddar remained closed and the localities gave a deserted look.

Most public events scheduled for Saturday in the city were postponed and shops and businesses remained closed. Moreover, public transport was scarce and in several areas absent from the roads.

Furthermore, the annual elections of the Karachi Bar Association, scheduled for today, were postponed to Dec 19 as lawyers could not reach the city courts’ premises to cast their votes.
