KARACHI: Sindh Rangers on Saturday launched a new mobile application aimed at protecting schools and colleges in Karachi, officials said.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, Col Qaiser of Rangers said that more than 3000 schools were already registered under the new application named ‘Rangers School College Protection’.
“The application has been specially designed to protect educational institutions from any potential threat,” Qaiser said.
“We have recorded data of over 3000 schools in the new application and gradually remaining schools and colleges will be added to the app,” he said.
“Karachi has been divided into 60 areas where Rangers will be deployed round the clock. Principals of the schools registered under this application will be able to generate a quick message in case of any threat,” he said.
He said that media houses and police would also be registered soon.
Speaking on this occasion, Maula Bux Chandio, Adviser to Sindh Chief Miniser Qaim Ali Shah, praised Rangers’ application as a good step.
He said that Sindh government also contributed to development of the new application.
Chandio said that shopping malls and offices would also be registered under the new application.
“We are proud of our law enforcement agencies and always appreciate their positive steps for the security of citizens,” he said.
The adviser, however, refused to comment when asked about the arrest of Dr Asim Hussain and Uzair Baloch by Rangers.
