KARACHI: It seems that the bureaucracy and the judiciary are the next in line to face the music and pay for their wrong doings. The arrest of Finance Secretary Mushtaq Raeesani and recovery of huge amount of money and gold from his possession hints that no one is going to be spared.
It is heartening to note that leading sensitive agencies in the country are on the same page on a larger agenda of purging the homeland of corrupt.
It is believed that the intelligence outfits are totally assisting and supporting the investigation agencies within the country. Reports regarding elements with questionable reputation and assets far beyond their means are being forwarded to investigation outfits as well as law enforcement agencies resulting in action.
Military leadership as well as PML-N leadership have developed synergies, which is evident from the economic progress, improving law & order situation and crackdown against the corrupt elements, even the military officers which were considered untouchables have been stripped of their titles.
Senior bureaucrats, officers and engineers of Karachi Building Control Authority (KBCA), high net worth individuals and business groups are being monitored and their affairs are being scrutinized. Evidence has been collected and raids are being conducted.

Several judges who have formed their law forms and taking undue benefits and earning clients for obvious reasons are on the lists. Concrete evidence is being compiled against these handful judges and soon they would be brought to justice.
It is believed that influential including senior government officers, businessmen and others are circulating the money earned through dirty businesses and enabling funding to terrorists and anti-social elements, while certain quarters in the judiciary are protecting these elements.
