KARACHI (City News) – Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah have Monday strongly condemned the attack at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) and summoned report of the incident.
Imran Ismail telephoned Sindh IG to inquire about the attack. It is police’s duty to provide security to the PSX and attack on it is synonymous with attacking Pakistan’s economy, he said.
The governor tweeted, “Strongly condemn the attack on PSX aimed at tarnishing our relentless war on terror. Have instructed the IG & security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are caught alive & their handlers are accorded exemplary punishments. We shall protect Sindh at all costs.”
Syed Murad Ali Shah praised the swift action taken by police and Rangers while directing them to stay alert. It was an attack on the country’s sovereignty and economy, he said.
The CM further added that anti-state elements want to take benefit during the COVID-19 situation by harming Pakistan. He summoned detailed inquiry report of the occurrence.
