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.

Targeted operation

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.

@A-No.1: Yes, the Government is playing to the gallery. They give impression that they are doing something. We never see the faces of those arrested. They are never brought before the courts. They are never punished so that it can act as a deterrent to other criminals. Why is this happening? Can anyone explain?
