These operations are a drama. From Ilyas Goth five people were arrested out of which one was mentally retarted, one KESC driver along with his younger brother, one milk shop owner and the brother of a drug dealer. They were released after "THOD & JODH" with the police. This is the second operatin in Ilyas Goth in a span of four months where the drug dealer always manages to escape however our brave forces manage to catch innocent people. Goverment is not all serious to put an end to the target killings.
