Byline: ANI

Multan, May 1 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said the involvement of a foreign hand in the recent spate of violence in Karachi could not be ruled out.

Addressing media persons here, Gilani said the government is committed to take stern action against anybody who challenges the writ of the country and is involved in violation of the law.

"All institutions in the country are strong and working within their constitutional frameworks," The News quoted Gilani, as saying.

At least 27 persons have been killed and over 30 were injured in continuous incidents of violence over the last two days in Karachi.

Several hotels, restaurants and vehicles were also torched in different parts of the city.

The violence and an unending process of firing had erupted in the city after two activists of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) were found shot dead. (ANI)
