The police arrested a security guard at a private bank and another suspect in the killing of a private security company’s supervisor last week. 


Muhammad Azam Soomro, supervisor at the National Police Foundation, was returning to his office after drawing cash from a United Bank Limited (UBL) branch off Thandi Sarak when he was intercepted by robbers near Niaz Stadium on February 14.

The robbers took a sum of Rs130,000 after killing him. A press statement from the police issued on Monday said that Altaf Deshak, a guard at UBL, was arrested for his involvement in the crime.
