KARACHI: According to the Dawn News, a suspected bandit was killed and two of his accomplices were arrested in what police described as an “encounter” in North Nazimabad on Sunday. However, none of the policemen was injured in the alleged exchange of fire. The police said that the bandits barged into the house of Mr Hanif in K Block within the remit of the Shahra-i-Noor Jehan police station.
