ISI and Pakistan Rangers officers involved in the recent Karachi incident to be relieved from duties on account of the orders stated by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
As per the statement released by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR):
It has been decided to remove the concerned officers from their current assignments for further departmental proceedings and disposal at [the Army’s] General Headquarters (GHQ),
The statement further said:
The Court of Inquiry has established that on the night of October 18/19, officers from Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) and the ISI sector Headquarters Karachi were considerably seized with the fallout of the desecration of Mazar-e-Quaid,
They [the security officers] were under increasing public pressure to ensure prompt action as per the law. Assessing the response of police authorities against this developing yet volatile situation to be slow and wanting, in a charged environment, the concerned ISI/Rangers officers decided to act, rather over-zealously,
They were indeed experienced enough to have acted more prudently and could have avoided creating an unwarranted situation that led to a misunderstanding between the two-state institutions,
The report added that this all is in relation to an incident that happened in the previous month where it was claimed the Rangers abducted the Sindh IGP.
