The Crime Investigation Department (CID) of the Sindh police claimed to have arrested six alleged terrorists along with arms and ammunition on Saturday.

The arrested men are believed to have been affiliated with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The officials said the men were caught during raids in Landhi, Baldia, Hub River Road, Bismillah Colony and Manghopir Road.

CID Operations SSP Fayyaz Khan told The Express Tribune that he headed the CID team that raided these areas after they were tipped off about the terrorists’ locations.

The names of the alleged militants are Haji Saeed Mahmood Mehsud, Syed Ali Shah Mehsud, Mumtaz Ahmed Mehsud, Abdul Khaliq Tokhti, Gul Zaman Afghani and Mohammad Saleem Afghani. SSP Khan said that the CID team also seized six TT pistols, five kilogrammes of hashish and a huge cache of ammunition.

According to him, these men belong to TTP’s Qari Hussain Mehsud group and that they had been involved in several heinous cases including target killings, robberies, kidnapping for ransom and police encounters. They were funding the militants to help them fight the security forces, he said.

Iftikhar-ur-Rehman | 10 years ago | Reply I wonder why the Police covers the faces of the terrorists arrested when they are showing them on TV and to print media. I believe their faces should be shown so that if anyone can give some more information regarding those arrested. Plus how do we know that police is showing the actual arrested terrorist, it could be anyone under the cover!!!!
