KARACHI: Rangers recovered explosives, grenades and other weapons from fruit crates on a truck in the Old Sabzi Mandi Sakhya Ground area of Karachi on Monday, Express News reported.

No one was arrested as the criminals managed to get away.

The targeted operation in Karachi began on September 5, and since then more than 300 suspects have been arrested. The Rangers are leading the operation which, they claim, is being conducted across the city – not just in the political strongholds of one party. Separately, the police have conducted 975 raids and arrested 1,232 criminals.

These numbers do not illustrate the efficacy or success of the targeted operation under way as the law-enforcement agencies have still not raided many of the ‘no-go’ areas, including Sohrab Goth and Manghopir. These areas are ungoverned territories where law-enforcers have no writ.

The Rangers are conducting raids and apprehending criminals affiliated with political parties along with the gangsters of Lyari, only a few of them being suspected target killers and extortionists. No one accused of sectarian violence and terrorism has been caught so far.


Dr.A.K.Tewari | 8 years ago | Reply Such operation not only required in Karachi but in entire Pakistan . The arrested people should be interrogated to the extent so that the root of terrorism can be dug up and exposed .

@why ?: Yes you are right. ET some times project the news in such away as if this is the last day . Or some times the moderator takes 16 hrs to clear the comment. This has happened to one of my comment. In my judgement their is no need for the moderator to hold or delay the comment. I have written many time about it but so far their is no change of policy. does not have any moderator. Some time their is so much bias in spinning the the news, it feels like I am reading Indian newspaper. I hope this goes thru the moderator because he is acting like a Headmaster.
