Karachi

February 12, 2019

During their combing operations in different parts of Karachi between late Sunday night and early Monday morning, officials of the Sindh Police Department arrested seven suspects, including three car thieves.

The Bilal Colony police claimed to have busted a gang of car thieves. The officials identified the three men they arrested as Furqan, Irshad and Shahid, and said they also recovered two TT pistols, 80 grams of hashish, seven car batteries and a stolen car (registration No. ALS-358) from the suspects. Citing Furqan’s statement to the police, the official said he was previously arrested by the Anti-Car Lifting Cell in 2016 and then released the following year after spending 11 months in jail.

Police said the man had admitted that he and his gang stole 54 cars from the Haidery Market and the 2K bus stop in the locality. The suspect said that in the past three or four months they had stolen 20 to 25 cars from Chase Up in New Karachi and 17 to 18 more from the Serena Mobile Market and the Haroon Shopping Centre.

He said that after they stole all those cars, they took out their batteries, amplifiers, speakers and any other valuable items they could find before abandoning the vehicles.

In a separate operation, 12 jurisdictions of the Sharea Faisal police station under the supervision of the Sharea Faisal SDPO and six mobiles of the Gulshan Division combed Block-11 of the Gulistan-e-Jauhar neighbourhood.

Four men were detained with four TT pistols. They were identified as Muhammad Irfan Khan, alias Yari; Muhammad Ibrahim, alias Banae; Yasir Khan, aliases Aachae and Ahmad; and Ziaur Rehman, alias Zero.
