Pakistan Army is concerned over the "rapidly deteriorating" law and order situation across the country and has sought "urgent steps" from the President to deal with the situation from spiralling out of control.
A meeting of army's top brass chaired by army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani Thursday reviewed the internal security in the wake of a series of devastating terror attacks against Shias in Quetta and Karachi that killed nearly 250 people.
Shortly after the meeting, Kayani met President Asif Ali Zardari to "communicate the disquiet among his commanders about the security situation spiralling out of control", the Dawn newspaper quoted its sources as saying.
Expressing concern over the "rapidly deteriorating" situation, he sought from President Zardari "urgent steps" to deal with the situation.
A brief statement issued by the presidency only said Kayani and Zardari had discussed the security situation but did not give details.
Reports in several Pakistani dailies said the army chief used the meeting to tell Zardari about the concerns of his commanders over the worsening law and order situation in Karachi, the country's financial hub.
Media reports said during his meeting with Zardari, Kayani discussed the recent attacks on Shias in Quetta and Karachi and an operation against the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, which has claimed most of the attacks.
