Karachi is not alien to police target killing as last month, SHO Ejaz Khwaja was shot to death in Clifton. As the government continues to be on the offensive against terrorists and armed miscreants of the city, incidents of firing and cracker attacks have also taken place against the police. During the last six months of the past year, as many as 80 policemen were killed in different incidents across the city.
