KARACHI: Rangers and police officers on Friday arrested around 44 suspects - accused of murder and attempted murder - in Karachi, Express News reported.
Targeted operations were conducted in city's Faqir Colony, Alfalah Society, North Nazimabad, Brohi Goth and Garden area.
According to a Rangers officer, ammunition and drugs were recovered from the suspects' hideouts.
The Rangers-led cleanup operation started in Karachi after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited the metropolitan early September and devised a strategy to curb violence.
With the provincial government on board, the prime minister gave a go-ahead to Rangers to conduct raids and arrest criminals.
The targeted operation began on September 7 and since then hundreds of 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.
