KARACHI -- While referring to last night's blast in which a 24-year old boy was killed and 10 others were injured, Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah vowed that the Sindh government would not let the bad times return to Karachi and would track down terrorists in every single area of Karachi to completely eliminate them.
