KARACHI: Four dacoits who attempted to rob a bank in Karachi on Thursday were identified as members of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.

Police have arrested all four including one who tried to fake his own death.

Armed with modern weapons, four armed men stormed into a bank in Karachi's Ali Garrh Colony and took the bank staff hostage. They threw hand grenades outside the bank which resulted in the destruction of four motorbikes.

Police along with commandos reached the spot and arrested all four robbers after a shooting encounter which lasted half an hour.

Two robbers were injured while one tried to escape by trying to fake his death. The robbers also admitted to several more bank dacoits in Karachi.

Syed A Mateen | 10 years ago | Reply Well done Police. People want you to do more. After studying bank dacoity cases, it is determined that most of the dacoits belongs to banned religious groups and they loot money to carry out their nefarious agenda of conducting more terrorism in the country. If Police becomes more vigilant and foil all bank dacoity cases in the country, I am confident that it will minimize terrorism related activities in Pakistan. When terrorists will not get the money, terrorists will not be able to conduct any activity.
