The Sindh Rangers arrested six suspects in raids across the city on Monday, three of whom were said to be terrorists affiliated with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Swat Group.

A spokesman for the paramilitary force said three suspects identified as Badhshah Islam, Mohammad Afzal and Syed Mehar Gul alias Gul Khan were arrested in a raid in the city’s Manghopir area. 

The men, added the spokesman, were found to be militants affiliated with the banned TTP-Swat Group and had been involved in target killings, terrorist attacks, kidnappings and other crimes.

In another raid in the Super Market area, the paramilitary force arrested a suspect named Sultan who was said to be a gangster based in Lyari.
