Karachi: KP fugitive among 2 arrested by CTD
KARACHI: The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) on Thursday claimed to have arrested two suspects, including a criminal also wanted by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police.
A CTD official said an intelligence–drive raid was conducted at a hideout on the outskirts of District West and, after an encounter, two men – Liaquat Ali and his associate Najaf Ali – were arrested and weapons seized.
Interrogations revealed that Liaquat was wanted by the KP police for several murder and kidnapping cases with an Rs1.5 million bounty announced for his arrest.
Officials said he had relocated to Karachi to evade KP authorities and resumed his criminal activities here, with his involvement in a bank robbery at Water Pump last year having been ascertained.
