Karachi: Rangers launch operation in Godhra
KARACHI: The Rangers carried out a search operation in a violence-hit locality of New Karachi Town on Sunday and picked up several suspects, provoking residents to take to the streets against the crackdown.
The law and order situation in the Godhra area has been bad since Friday, when the prayer leader of a local mosque was gunned down by unknown assailants.
Admitting that the law and order situation was worsening in the area, New Karachi SP Karamullah Samoo said that the situation in Godhra Camp was very volatile.
The Rangers launched the operation in the evening, cordoned off the area and started a house-to-house search to seize weapons and arrest miscreants.
Till the filing of this report, the search operation was continuing and the Rangers had detained some six persons.
