KARACHI: Three suspected foreign terrorists were killedtWN as Karachi police conducted a raid as part of the ongoing operation in the city’s Sohrab Goth area, Express News reported on Sunday.

The police also arrested 20 suspects, according to SSP Malir Rao Anwar. They have been taken to an undisclosed location.

However, six others managed to escape the security cordon.

SSP Malir, while speaking to Express News correspondent, expressed fear that someone inside the police department had tipped off the militants about this raid.

The operation, which started in September last year, has been termed successful by both the government and law enforcement agencies but the recent brazen attack on the city’s international airport on June 8 raised many questions about the success of the operation.

The Express Tribune had recently learnt that the LEAs were currently focusing on tackling the issue of ‘terrorism’ to avoid further backlash of the military operation in Waziristan.

    All insiders should be charged with sedition and all insider double agent suspects’ phones should be tapped.

    Three terrorists were killed, six others managed to escape, and twenty suspects are arrested by the police. BRAVO!
    If we are serious to eradicate terrorism please be prepared for the long haul. These are hard and ‘ingrained with fighting spirit’ mercenaries and believe in “kill or be killed.” So, frankly this is not going to end in the short or medium term.
    The defeat will finally be given to terrorism and ignorance on the internal front in education, economics, and internal administration. The longer we take, the longer the misery. Salams

    Since all the cops and terrorists involved here are all muslims, nobody in Pakistan will shout foul. if the same crackdown on terrorists happens in non Muslim country, we hear the shouts of religious opression from Pakistanis. There is a word for such behavior, its called “Hypocrite”.
    Anyways, for the sake of common men, I wish all luck to Pakistani security forces to uproot all terrorist organization. Killing people for cause is not justifiable under any circumstances.
