KARACHI: DG Rangers Sindh, Ajaz Chaudhry has said that an investigation into the killing of a youth in Karachi by Rangers personnel is underway, and those involved will be dealt with iron handed. Chaudhry said the inquiry will be conducted by a brigadier and two lieutenant colonels.

DG Sindh further stated that Rangers have not been given authority to shoot and kill a citizen in this manner, so as soon as their findings from inquiry are in, they will take the strictest action possible. He added that those involved in the killing were immediately arrested and an FIR was registered against them.

It is vital to mention here that a youngster namely Sarfaraz was shot dead in cold blood by the Rangers personnel in Karachi on the other day that spread across the globe."

"ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) took suo motu notice of the Sarfaraz Shah case, late on Thursday.

According to sources a five member larger bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry will hear the case.

Deputy General (DG) Rangers, Inspector General (IG) Sindh Police and Chief Secretary Sindh have been summoned to appear at the SC on Friday at 9:30am.

Earlier on Wednesday, Sarfaraz, a matric student and brother of Salik Shah, a reporter of Samaa TV, was shot dead at point blank range by Rangers personnel at Karachi’s Benazir Bhutto Park in Clifton on the pretext of being an armed dacoit. The now infamous footage of the killing was aired across all local media outlets garnering unprecedented attention of the incident."
