Karachi traders pull down shutters


 All Karachi Traders Alliance Association (AKTAA), representing small traders of the city, were observing shutter-down strike in the city today against increasing threats of extortion faced by Karachi traders.

Atiq Mir of AKTAA said that the traders of Karachi would keep their shops closed on 5th April because they were facing lots of problems including killing of traders, extortion, kidnapping and threats.

He said that the government had failed to resolves traders’ problems. He demanded of the government to provide security to traders and take action firm against extortionist mafia.
