‘Land mafia, underworld pose threat to city’s peace’

Sindh Assembly members were told on Wednesday that there is a dire need to keep vigil over land mafia and underworld members as they could damage the city’s peace once again. Participating in a debate on Sindh budget 2009-10, Health Minister Dr Sagheer Ahmed expressed concern that land mafia and members of the underworld were continuing their terrorist activities in Karachi, and asked the Sindh Home Department to keep an eye on them. Minister Auqaf Abdul Haseeb said gangsters were using Mewa Shah Graveyard for storing their weapons and burying bodies of their murdered enemies. He demanded the home department to take action against the gangsters and ensure peace in adjoining areas of the graveyard.
