KARACHI: Police officials carried out a late-night combing operation in Karachi on Wednesday, arresting nearly 30 suspects.

The combing operation was carried out by Gulshan Division police in the vicinity of the Central Jail in the city’s Ghausia Colony locality – the same area where Rangers discovered a tunnel being dug by terrorists for a planned jailbreak.
