ISPR say military officers decided to act ‘overzealously’ under increasing public pressure and amid ‘slow’ police response to the volatile situation.
Officers could have avoided creating an unwarranted situation which led to misunderstanding between two state institutions.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Tuesday said that officials of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Pakistan Rangers Sindh involved in the ‘Karachi Incident’ have been removed pending further department proceedings.
In a statement, the military’s media affairs wing said that the court of inquiry constituted on the orders of Cheif of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa to redress the grievances of the Sindh inspector general has been completed. The ISPR statement said that “The court of inquiry has established that on the night of Oct 18/Oct 19, officers from Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) and ISI sector Headquarters Karachi were considerably seized with the fall out of the desecration of Mazar-e-Quaid”.
