Restoring order: Govt ponders ruthless anti-terror law

Restoring order: Govt ponders ruthless anti-terror law | Karachi | Scoop.it

According to the documents available with Express News, the government plans amendments in the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, including in Section 5 which authorises the security forces to ‘use force’ to prevent a terrorist act. Presently, the security forces can ‘open fire’ ‘when fired upon’ by a suspect(s). Through an amendment the government seeks to omit the phrase ‘when fired upon’.

Similarly, if the proposed amendments are approved, target killers, extortionists and kidnappers will also be treated as ‘terrorists’. And the armed forces or civil armed forces will be authorised to detain a person involved in such offences for three months for investigations. Currently, they can detain a suspect for 30 days. Apparently, the move has been prompted bythe law and order situation in the megacity of Karachi.

Made in India, Israel, US: Karachi flush with arms, says SC

Made in India, Israel, US: Karachi flush with arms, says SC | Karachi | Scoop.it

The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday observed that the unchecked smuggling of arms through ports left the impression that the crime was done with the connivance of security agencies.

The apex court ordered the customs, maritime security agency, the Rangers and police departments to file their replies as to what action they had initiated to curb arms, ammunitions smuggling through seaports.

The bench observed that weapons were pouring into Karachi from US, Israel and India through sea routes. “If all the stakeholders had determined to stop this smuggling, not a single bullet could have made it to the city,” the CJ said, adding that the present scenario pointed not to negligence but a complicity of the law enforcers.
