KARACHI: The Sindh government has not yet approved summary seeking extension of Sindh Rangers’ special powers in Karachi, ARY News reported.

According to details, Rangers special policing powers under Anti Terrorism Act are due to expire on Tuesday.

Interior minister Sindh has not signed the summary, seeking one year extension of powers, and sent it to the law department.

The federal cabinet had empowered Rangers to carry out targeted operation in support of police against criminals involved in targeted killings, kidnappings for ransom, extortion and terrorism in Karachi. Rangers could take criminals into custody for 90-days exercising these powers.

The following year on May 04 Rangers were given 90-day extension in their powers.
