An office of the Pakistan Muslim League-N in the city and a popular restaurant owned by a central leader of the party were ransacked by people carrying flags of a nationalist party of Sindh on Monday. The attacks came a day after a statement by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, reportedly calling for separating Karachi from Sindh and making it a province. A duty officer of Bahadurabad police station said dozens of people attacked the PML-N office in the KDA Scheme No.1 and ransacked the premises, breaking windowpanes and furniture. The attack started at around 2pm and continued for about three hours and, according to sources, police stayed away from the scene. However, Bahadurabad police have registered an FIR against unidentified attackers. A similar attack took place at the Bilawal Chowrangi on the (Bar-B-Q Tonight) restaurant owned by PML-N leader Sardar Rahim. The assailants who arrived on pick-ups and carried flags of the nationalist party ransacked the ground floor of the building. They also fired in the air, police said. A heavy contingent of police arrived at the place and detained some people. Clifton SP Tariq Dharejo said four men involved in ransacking the premises had been detained. �Two FIRs have been registered against the suspects at the Boat Basin police station � one on the complaint of the owners of the restaurant and the other on behalf of the state,� he said.
