SUKKUR: The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) claimed to have killed Sunday night a suspect allegedly behind the killings of SP Chaudhry Aslam and qawwal Amjad Sabri in an encounter on the Sukkur-Shikarpur road.
CTD SP Irfan Samo said the suspect, Kamran Bhatti, was the acting ameer of banned outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi after Naeem Bukhari.
Bhatti and two of his accomplices were riding on a motorcycle when law enforcers signalled them to pull over. Instead, they opened fire at the CTD officials.

Explosives and detonators were recovered from Bhatti’s possession, Samo confirmed, adding that Bhatti was wanted in at least 20 high-profile terror-related offences, including the 2014 Karachi airport attack.
Bhatti was also involved in an attack on the house of SP Aslam, added Samo.
