Police is playing its role against crimes in Sindh,” he said while addressing a press conference in Larkana after Rangers carried out raids against alleged criminals allegedly having links with the provincial ruling party, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

He expressed satisfaction over law and order situation in Sindh and said law and order situation had improved in interior Sindh and Karachi. Situation of Karachi was bad earlier, he said adding police was playing its role against crimes in Sindh.

The CM said after a long time two big incidents, of murder of famed qawwal Amjad Sabri and abduction of Awais Ali Shah, took place in Sindh.

To another query, he said police will arrest him if Abdul Qadir Patel has absconded.

He also said everyone had the right to approach high court against ATC decisions.

Earlier, the CM visited the residence of Chief Justice Sindh High Court Sajjad Ali Shah and congratulated him on recovery of his kidnapped son Syed Awais Ali shah.
