Talking to media outside the parliament, he said the law enforcement agencies are conducting operation against illegal immigrants, adding, the people who are living in Pakistan despite their expiry of visa have also been deported.

He urged the people to stand with national security agencies and criticism on them without any evidence is unjustified as they are fighting for the survival of the country.

He disclosed that timely reporting about 1100 cases by the agencies saved the country from terrorists activities.

Rehman Malik termed the news about deleting of Saleem Shahzad’s data as totally wrong and added that a commission has been formed to probe the killing of Saleem Shahzad.

To another question, he said to maintain the law and order situation is the responsibility of the provinces. Law and order situation in Karachi was under control, he said.

“Rangers were deployed in Karachi on the request of Sindh government to assist the police force. The police strength was not enough to control the law and order situation in Sindh. It will be unfair to blame the whole Rangers personnel for an individuals action”, he said.

He said during the last five month about 48 police personnel have embraced ‘Shahadat’ while taking action against the criminals.

He said all the checkposts in the capital have been restored and the police forces deployed at the checkposts have been directed to check people without any discrimination.

“The government will take all possible measures to protect the live and propriety of the people,” he said. To a question, he replied that IG Police in Islamabad will be appointed soon.
