CORPS COMMANDER, DG RANGERS LAUDED
Siraj Kassam Teli, Patron-in-Chief, M Zubair Motiwala, former chairman and Younus M Bashir, Chairman SITE Association of Industry, on Tuesday appreciated the efforts of Corps Commander Lt Gen Sajjad Ghani and Director General Rangers (Sindh) Rizwan Akhtar for improving law and order in Karachi.
They also wholeheartedly congratulated Lt Gen Rizwan Akhtar for his posting as the new DG ISI. They wished that in this coveted position he would serve their beloved country to the best of his abilities.
In a statement, they said that during their posting here as Corps Commander and Director General Rangers (Sindh), they had done a tremendous job and they were pleased that they had made a historic difference in the lives of Karachites.
They appreciated their efforts generally for the province and particularly for the Karachites and also the role they played in improving the law and order situation in SITE which is the largest industrial estate in Pakistan. As before their initiative, SITE was perhaps the place with the highest rate of crime in the city where industrialists were frightened and frustrated and their confidence was at the lowest ebb.
In that scenario, these gentlemen took the initiative with their deeply-prepared comprehensive security plan with all the minor details of entry and exit points at vulnerable places etc. In the series of dialogue with industrialists, they presented and implemented their plan.
While congratulating the newly-appointed Director General Rangers (Sindh) Maj Gen Bilal Akbar, they hoped that efforts for further strengthening security system would require continuity. They further expressed the hope that it would not only be maintained but would be accelerated. They offered their full cooperation and all-out support for the Corps and the Rangers.
