The Sindh Rangers on Monday arrested 15 suspects, including alleged dacoits, during targeted operations in the city.

They were allegedly involved in dacoities and street crime cases. The paramilitary force also conducted raids in the Kalakot and Ferozeabad areas where they arrested three suspects, Shahid Hussain, Anees and Qamar Saeed. They were allegedly operating drug dens in their respective areas.
