An army general and a provincial police chief were on Tuesday sacked from their posts for the cold-blooded shooting and killing of an unarmed youth in Karachi. Major General Ejaz Chaudhry, head of the paramilitary Pakistan Rangers in southern Sindh province, and Sindh police chief Fayyaz Leghari were transferred on the orders of the Supreme Court, which has taken suo moto notice of the killing of the youth.

Chaudhry was posted out "in compliance with the SC's orders", a military spokesman said. Leghari's transfer was announced in a statement issued by the interior ministry. The SC had on Friday ordered the transfer of the two top officials within three days.
