Giving instructions for speeding up operation against dacoits in Shikarpur, Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Syed Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday made it clear to the police officers that not a single bandit should be spared, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing police personnel at the SSP office in Shikarpur, CM Murad said that even Rangers and Pakistan Army personnel could be called in to assist police in the operation, if required.

He added the provincial government considered the deaths of two police jawans and one photographer in clashes with dacoits a big loss.

He expressed the hope that Shikarpur police would carry out the operation until it met success. “The dacoits will meet a terrible fate,” he hoped.
