KARACHI: Following the Sindh High Court chief justice's order to arrest Uzair Baloch, police officials conducted an unsuccessful raid at the proclaimed offender’s house in Lyari, Express News reported on Saturday.

Amn Committee leader Baloch was able to flee from the scene, leaving the police visibly frustrated and embarrassed. To show that work had been done, police officials threw furniture around in Baloch’s house despite his absence.

According to MPA Javed Nagori, a police officer had warned Baloch of the raid before it took place.

Following news of the raid, residents of the area assembled outside Baloch’s house and chanted slogans against police officials.

On April 24, nearly 300 Rangers personnel conducted an unsuccessful raid at the same residence as part of the operation against target killings in Lyari.

Uzair Baloch, Habib Jan Baloch, Noor Muhammad alias Baba Ladla and six others facing the murder trial of Arshad Pappu, his brother and a confidant were declared proclaimed offenders by the Anti-Terrorism Court on July 24. The court ordered to seize their movable and immoveable property.

Alleged Lyari gangster Arshad Pappu, his brother, Yasir Arafat, and their confidant, Juma Shera, were killed on the night of March 16.

Uzair Baloch declared absconder. Supreme Court takes notice. IGP is called to report within 7 days. Police conducts raid. Uzair Baloch runs away. Now the IGP can go to court and say, "Dekhay jee, humnay to raid kiya tha, liken woh farar ho gaya." It's all just topi drama. And why people protesting and chanting slogans against the police when they are there to arrest a named suspect in a murder case? Uzair Baloch should himself appear at the court because it is is civic duty. If he is innocent, he should let the court decide. Since he is running away, it shows that he is guilty.

Rogue terrorist on the move. Story sounds familiar in Pakistan, only this time there won't be a black ops team to take him down
