KARACHI -The law enforcement agencies have failed to arrest the culprits involved in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and those who resorted to violence after the tragic incident of December 27 last year. As many as 24 persons were killed in the violence, 1,085 vehicles were set on fire while hundreds of business centres, factories and branches of banks were badly damaged. PPP Chairperson Benazir Bhutto was murdered at Liaquat Bagh, Rawalpindi, on Dec 27, 2007, that led to days-long country-wide violence. According to Sindh Home Department's detailed report on post-Benazir murder losses, obtained by The Nation, the last year's violence caused billions of rupees loss to the private and public sectors. The report has been prepared on the pressure of the PPP workers, but no action had been taken, so far, against the killers of Benazir Bhutto and those who violated law and created anarchy in Karachi and other parts of the country. Report revealed that 24 people including two cops and a girl were killed in last year's violence after December 27 while over 55 persons were wounded. About 1,085 vehicles were set on fire in Karachi out of which over 395 were gutted only in Bin Qaism Town, 191 in Gulshan-e-Iqbal Town, 105 in Landhi, 87 in Clifton, 53 in Lyari, 36 in Jamshaid and 81 in Site Town. Report further disclosed that 22 factories and 69 banks were also set on fire. Statistics further pointed out that 27 petrol pumps, 12 shops, 2 marriage halls, 2 hospitals, 1 town office, 2 UC offices and six other government offices including two post offices, two KESC offices, SSGC office, two Telephone Exchanges and SPO office set-ablaze by the miscreants. Meanwhile, six restaurants including the international food chains, two police stations, 11 police posts and 10 traffic police offices were set on fire during the violence. After the violence a total of 159 FIRs were registered and 375 alleged culprits were arrested out of which 156 were released immediately. It is pertinent to mention here that last year the government had made tall claims of giving compensation the victims of the violence, but nothing had been done so far. Meanwhile, the alleged culprits arrested by the police during or after riots had also been released because of insufficient evidence. As the nation is observing the first death anniversary of their favourite leader Benazir Bhutto, the mourners must be looking towards the government regarding the arrest of the killers and the people who created hell in the country after the tragic incident. The people in Karachi were expecting that after coming into power the PPP government would arrest the killers of Benazir Bhutto and take to task the culprits of the December 27 violence. But so far the PPP's government had not shown any serious interest in this regard that was very disappointing for the PPP voters and the countrymen as well.
