Karachi: Sindh Education and Labor Minister Saeed Ghani has demanded to include Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid in investigation of religious scholar Maulana Adil Khan’s murder.

Saeed Ghani demanded this while addressing a press conference in Karachi on Monday. The provincial minister said Sheikh Rashid had said that terror attacks could occur if opposition parties hold protest against the PTI government.

The authority of providing security to prominent personalities should be given to provincial governments, he demanded.

Meanwhile, Ullema Committee in Karachi has threatened to hold strike and protest if security personnel fail to arrest the murderers of Maulana Adil in 48 hours.

The police officers have told new weapon was used in the assassination of the religious scholar and his driver. Ten suspects have been detained so far in connection with the case.

Earlier, funeral prayer of slain religious scholar was offered in Jamia Farooqia in Karachi.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and Inspector General of Police (IGP) taking notice of the firing incident had directed the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Korangi to submit an inquiry report into the matter.

The CM maintained that the miscreants wanted to disrupt law and order situation in the city. The chief minister vowed to bring the killers to justice.
