The Anti-Vehicle Lifting Cell (AVLC) of the Karachi police on Wednesday claimed to have arrested a motorcycle thief.

According to a spokesperson for the AVLC, Asim Raza, son of Mohammad Razak, hailed from Khuzdar. He, along with his three companions, was said to be involved in snatching and stealing motorcycles in the mornings, especially from office-goers.

A motorcycle, a pistol and five kilograms of hashish were recovered from his possession. They used to transport the snatched motorcycles to Balochistan on a daily basis through carriers. The suspect had been arrested for the second time. Earlier, he had been arrested in the year 2016, the spokesperson added.

The South Zone police claimed to have recovered a woman and her two children from her ex-husband’s house.

According to the police, they took action after Maryam’s father registered a complaint that her daughter’s former husband, Arif, had forcibly kept Maryum and her children at his house. At this, the police raided Arif’s residence and recovered the complainant’s daughter and two minor children.
