KARACHI: Former President and leader of PPP Asif Ali Zardari has demanded that Federal government, as well as all the Provincial governments should take urgent measures to ensure special security to the Judges and also members of their family.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Asif Ali Zardari pointed out that because the Judges of the country are also leading the ongoing war against extremism and terrorism, it's our collective responsibility that we take all necessary measures to provide them and their families with all the security and protection they needed.

The former president has also demanded that bullet-proof vehicles should immediately be provided to all the honorable Judges of the country, on a priority basis.

He said that the security agencies and Police were still unable to figure out as to how and why Shahabaz Taseer, son of a former governor of the Punjab province, and Ali Gillani son of a former prime minister of the country were kidnapped.   

Now, the security agencies also need to investigate and explain as to what were the circumstances which lead to the kidnapping of Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah’s son, who was abducted in broad daylight from a popular shopping center of Karachi.
