25 dog-bite cases reported from Karachi in a single day

KARACHI: The number of dog -bite cases in  Karachi has alarmingly increased with over 25 patients, most of them suffering from rabies, brought to the city’s hospitals

Surprisingly, more than 25 dog-bite cases,  among them 12 from Liaqatabad alone, were reported to major city hospitals in a single day amid a shortage of anti-rabies vaccine.

Around 23 people were reportedly brought to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital (ASH) on Monday for treatment for dog bites, according to  RMO Dr. Jahnzaib.

“12 people were brought from only Liaqatabad alone,” said the doctor. More than 13 other patients were rushed to the medical facility from other parts of the city, he added.

Dr. Jahnzaib said there was no anti-rabies vaccine available in the hospital, adding that the people bought it from outside for the treatment of their loved ones.

Hospitals in the entire province have been facing an acute shortage of anti-rabies vaccine amid a growing population of stray dogs and non-existence of facilities in the rural parts of Sindh to face the challenge.

People are demanding the authorities ensure the availability of anti-rabies vaccination in all major hospitals in the city and take concrete steps for the prevention of the menaces and control of the population of stray dogs in the metropolis and rural areas of the province.

A Rabies Encephalitis is a dog-borne viral illness caused mostly by the biting of stray dogs, and if ARV is not administered to the affected person along with immunoglobulin, the patient suffers a miserable death due to hydrophobia and other complications of the disease.

MMA stages sit-in against ‘rigged’ elections

KARACHI: Activists of the opposition parties’ alliance Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal led by the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl and the Awami National Party on Thursday staged a protest sit-in outside the Election Commission, Sindh, offices against what they called “rigged” elections of July 25.

The participants in the sit-in chanted slogans that they did not accept the election results, the election commissioner should resign and fresh elections be held in the country.

On the occasion, police force was deployed outside the EC offices with an armoured vehicle and a water cannon to meet any untoward situation.

Speaking on the occasion, MMA leaders Maulana Rashid Mehmood Soomro, Aslam Ghauri, Younus Buneri, Abdul Rashid Nomani and others accused the police of stopping their colleagues at different places, including Sohrab Goth and Hasan Square, from joining them at the protest sit-in.

They said that the mandate of the people had been stolen to impose Imran Khan on them. They also said that if their leadership ordered them, they would block all roads to Karachi. They also warned that if fresh elections were not held, there would be “Damadam must Qalandar” across the country. They said that they would continue to block the way of “Ladla” until their demands were met.

Maulana Rashid Mehmood said: “We reject the election results and on Aug 14 instead of celebrating Independence Day, we will observe an ‘Independence struggle Day’.

ANP leader Younus Buneri said that after “stealing” the mandate, a particular party was being imposed on the people which had shattered the confidence whatsoever people had in democracy in the country. “We would never accept the results of rigged elections,” he added.

A.D. Khawaja to continue working as Sindh police chief, directs SC

The Supreme Court on Thursday directed A.D. Khawaja to continue functioning in his capacity as the provincial police chief while also accepting the Sindh Government’s appeal challenging a similar ruling by the Sindh High Court.

In September 2017 ─ months after the Sindh Government withdrew the officer’s powers to decide the transfers and postings of senior police officials in the province ─ the Sindh High Court had ordered Khawaja to continue working as the inspector general of police.

A month later, the Sindh government had challenged the SHC’s ruling in the Supreme Court. In its petition, the provincial government had maintained that services of an inspector general of police (IGP) are offered to the province on the will of the provincial governments.

Accepting the petition for hearing on Thursday, the apex court ruled that Khawaja would not be removed from his post even if the federal government consents to it.

“Any steps taken by the federal government regarding the appointment of the inspector general of police Sindh will not have any importance,” Chief Justice Saqib Nisar said during the hearing, adding that Khawaja would keep his post until the trial concludes.

“The appointment of Sindh IGP is conditional to the ruling of the Supreme Court.”

The lawyer representing Sindh government told the court that the SHC had declared the Police Act 2011 as constitutional.

“The SHC also gave A.D. Khawaja the powers to decide transfer of police officers,” argued the lawyer.

“The Sindh High Court has given a very beautiful order,” the chief justice said. “It is worth reading two, three times.”

Tug of war between Khawaja, Sindh govt

Khawaja’s differences with bigwigs of Sindh’s ruling party on issues relating to removal/posting of police officials before by-elections in some constituencies, his stance on a businessman said to be a close associate of PPP leader Asif Zardari and recruitment in the police department are no secret.

The PPP-led Sindh government had twice tried to remove IG Khawaja from his post — first in December, 2016, when it sent him on forced leave and then in April, 2017, when it surrendered his services to the federal government and appointed Dasti, then in grade-21, as the provincial police chief.

In September 2017, the SHC ruled that A.D. Khawaja will continue functioning as the provincial police chief, bringing a brief end to the legal wrangling between civil rights campaigners and the Sindh government over the IGP’s posting.

The provincial government’s decision to remove Khawaja from his post had been seen by some as the PPP’s strategy for the upcoming general election. During the hearings of the petitions, IGP Khawaja offered to leave his post, telling the SHC through his counsel that doing his job had become increasingly difficult under the current circumstances as he has been facing increasing hostility from political quarters, with the provincial government keen to send him packing as soon as possible.

However, the SHC refused to let Khawaja relinquish his post and maintained its stay on his removal till it deliberates the matter.

According to the petitioners, the IGP was sent on a “forced leave” on Dec 19 because the Sindh government was “unhappy” with him over several issues relating to the recruitment of constables and suspension of police officers.

Born in a family of traders in Tando Mohammad Khan, Mr Khowaja had assumed charge as IGP in March 2016 after the removal of then IGP Ghulam Hyder Jamali who had found himself at the centre of a National Accountability Bureau investigation into mismanagement of police funds.
