Home minister refutes news item

KARACHI: Sindh Home Minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza has strongly rebutted a report in a section of the press whereby he was attributed to have said that the decision for removal of barriers in Karachi will not be withdrawn at any cost.

Clarifying the report, Home Minister said that it had been decided in the Sindh Cabinet meeting that barriers in different parts of the province, as a result of which the people were facing problem in their movement while at certain places traffic was also being hindered, would be removed gradually.

He stated that illegal barriers setup without permission would be removed gradually while the barriers put up with permission for community safety, would continue to remain and would be regularised.
