June 13, 2018

District West police on Tuesday arrested three alleged Lyari gangsters who were wanted on target killing, extortion and rape charges.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Omer Shahid Hamid of District West said a Pak Colony police team conducted a raid in the Jahanabad area and after an encounter arrested three gangsters identified as Akbar alias Kulee, Maula Bux alias Maulu and Bux.

The team seized hand grenades, Kalashnikovs and two 30- bore pistols from the possession of the suspects. During the initial interrogation, police learnt that the gangsters belonged to the Uzair Baloch group and they were wanted in cases of extortion, murder, rape and kidnapping for ransom.

The three were also involved in short-term kidnappings of traders of Shershah Kabari Market. They also used to hijack trucks brining rice and betel nuts from Balochistan to Karachi and took them to their hideout in the Jahanabad area.

They admitted that in the year 2012, they attacked a police van in Shershah and injured ASI Rahimullah, PC Wazeer Sultan and a child. ASI Rahimullah later died at hospital. SSP Hamid said the gangsters also kidnapped a woman from Lyari General Hospital as they suspected she was an informant of law enforcers. They raped her and took her to Agra Taj bus stop where they shot her dead.
