KARACHI: An accused target killer has confessed to murdering two Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) workers, the CID revealed on Tuesday.

CID officer, SSP Fayyaz Khan said that the accused who had been arrested from Madina town along with weapons, had confessed to killing two people linked with the MQM, Umair and Mansoor.

According to sources, the accused has links to a political party.

Police say they are currently raiding different locations to apprehend the target killer’s accomplices.

Police and Rangers arrested more than 200 suspects in a 12 hour long operation on Sunday, recovering large number of weapons and ammunition.

    Why are they telling the affiliation of victims but not the killer? Is there some image building going on here?

    If this killer has been described as slayingMQM workers one can’t help but conclude that Kamran Madhuri, Sohail Commando ( and Messrs Pahari and the other viciously nasty hit men) were engaged in killing ‘non-MQM’ workers.

    Honestly i’m sick of hearing this drama, these guys are all pathetic and don’t value human life. I don’t care what party’s people they annihilate have some sympathy for the loss of life. It’s so sad that I once used to live there, never thought people would react like animals. It’s hard to defend my home country when it’s own people are the savages.

    I think Agencies and Media has again started “Save MQM compaign” through these techniques of highlighting MQM as a party of victimized, without naming the killers’ affiliation. Both the ends using weapons should be brought to justice to make our city peaceful.

    Can we please have ‘truth & reconciliation’ and move on. No party will ever own these unfortunte lots. It is tragic that our political parties make killers out of ordinary men. Please move on, let the elected representative of Karachi sit with the Chief Justice, and all the on-lookers and passerbys may step back from the accident cite that Karachi has turned into. Let us just have the elected people and the Chief Justice decide the course of action to reconcile all.

    How come they cover the faces of the criminals they catch. I dont know what is the problem in showing to the world who they are so that the peole are aware of them for the future.
    Rehman Malik had directed the police and rangers not to hide their faces. Why are they not following the direct orders of the government of Pakistans Interior minister.
    I think they do this because they do not actually catch anyone but use jailed criminals or other police personel and cover their faces so that no one can actually tell that they really caught someone or not. I have never seen this practice anywhere in the world where the police is trying to give these criminals a better future by not letting their faces to be shown so that they can again come out of jail and get back to their criminal ways. Pathetic…totaly pathetic rule!Recommend
