KARACHI: Sindh was experiencing a partial strike on Friday over a call by the province’s nationalist parties to observe a black day in protest against the new local government law.

Routine life was affected in the suburban areas of Sindh’s largest city and provincial capital of Karachi.

Shops remained closed and traffic remained thin on the roads in the city’s areas of Malir, Steel Town, Gulshan-i-Hadeed, Safoora Chowk, Sachal and Khamiso Goths.

However, normalcy prevailed in most other parts of the provincial capital.

Earlier on Thursday night, four buses were burnt in Karachi and Jamshoro.

Separately, unknown men had planted a bomb weighing three kilograms near a railway track in Larkana which was defused by the bomb disposal squad.

In the wake of these incidents, Sindh’s Additional Interior Secretary Waseem Ahmed issued directives to the police and Rangers to increase patrols and conduct immediate operations.
