No they do not fly to Karachi. Most of the Europe flights go non-stop from Bangkok or from Abu Dhabi, using the MD11 or b747-400.
As far as I know, GA stopped serving Karachi sometime in the early 80s.

I meant the TECHNICAL stopovers that GA initiated in 1991 and not scheduled passenger flights which were as you said terminated in the early 80's, the technical flights do show up on the departure information at Karachi airport

No, they no longer have TECHNICAL stops at Karachi at all. As they use MD11s/747s for non-stop European flights out of Bangkok/Singapore, there is no need for the Karachi stop.
