KARACHI: Following  a violent Sunday, Karachi saw five people die in different parts of the city due to the deteriorating law and order situation, Express News reported on Monday.

Two bodies were recovered from the Bin Qasim area, while unidentified armed men attacked a car in Nazimabad, leaving one dead.

The ongoing violence in the restive Lyari also claimed two lives.

Lyari unrest

As the wave of violence in parts of Lyari continues for the third day, armed rival groups in the area hurled 10 hand grenades on Monday.

Residents have been confined to their houses because of the intense violence, while the battle between the opponents left two dead and six injured.

Criminal elements have reportedly set up check posts on the top of the houses and have deployed machine guns.

The gang members are communicating through walkie-talkies to coordinate attacks.

Police and Rangers personnel are unable to enter the area.

On June 8, a clash broke out between Kutchi Rabita Committee (KRC) and a rival group shortly after a young man, Arif Baloch, was killed and his friend was injured in Kalri.

classical slap on the dg rangers who claimed lyari is peaceful and there is no no-go area in lyari. He must resign!! Typical of people who still thinks its MQM fault. I will advise mqm, leave it alone..Let ppp(p) handle this. Since they are in full power in sindh, they better do their job and answer people of Sindh.

@Karachiite: So basically you have no problem with the Liyari killings but what problem you really have is PTI standing against MQM's violent and criminal beahavior! Please keep your grudges apart and for once actually think for Karachi!
