Chief Justice of Sindh High Court (SHC) Justice Mushir Alam on Saturday took notice of the violence in the metropolis, which devoured many precious lives in the past several days.

According to Registrar SHC, the CJ has sought a report in this connection from Inspector General of Sindh Police (IGP) Mushtaq Ahmed Shah and Sindh Rangers Director General Maj Gen Rizwan Akhtar.

It should be mentioned here that eight people were shot down overnight (Friday-Saturday) as the recent spate of target killing is not coming to an end though President Asif Ali Zardari and Federal Interior Minister Rehman A. Malik had earlier given their assurances that the situation will be brought under control and the target killers will be grabbed.
