Karachi: Clashes continue in Lyari; several suspects arrested
KARACHI: Rangers and police conducted raids and arrested several suspects from different areas of the city, including tension–hit area Lyari, SAMAA reports on Sunday.
According to reports, more than fifty suspected persons were arrested from Lyari since last night. Last night a gang-war criminal Akhtar alias Akku was killed in the area that created more tension.
On the fourth consecutive day, life in Lyari remained paralysed as clashes between rival criminal groups and their encounters with security personnel continue.
Yesterday, as many as eleven people were killed, including children and women, in the area. Four suspected criminals were also among the dead.
People of the area were seen migrating to relatively safer and more peaceful areas due to the continuous violence and tension.
Targeted operations by Rangers and police are going on in the city after the federal government’s orders as the city violence and crimes seemed un-ending.
