The visit had come a day after Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah wrote a letter to Rangers expressing his annoyance at their ‘transgression of powers’ in multiple raids the paramilitary force had conducted at government offices.
According to an official statement, DG Rangers Major Akbar had received Mukhtar, who paid a visit to the martyrs’ memorial, laid a floral wreath and offered Fateha for the personnel who lost their lives in line of duty.
