KARACHI: Investigators probing the attack on the Crime Investigation Department (CID) centre in Karachi on Thursday have said that recently-nabbed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) militants had been threatening the Sindh police’s main investigating agency with dire consequences.

‘You either kill us or let us go’ was their demand.

While Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik appeared sure about the involvement of the LeJ, a senior police officer disagreed with the conclusion and said he was betting his ‘smart money’ on the TTP for being solely responsible for the deadly attack.

Investigators are now facing a daunting challenge in un raveling the sequence of events because the crime scene has been trampled over and key CCTV footage of the attack remains missing.

Meanwhile, SSP Fayyaz Khan released two sketches of suspected militants involved in the attack on the CID centre.

Syed A. Mateen | 11 years ago | Reply These sketches are of no use. If both of the terrorists will be roaming freely, no body will be able to recognize them. Karachi is a cosmopolitan city and we need to install CCTV at every nook and corner to apprehend the bad guys and these CCTV’s should have the capability to record the scenes without any electricity interruption. What was the use of installing CCTV cameras outside the CID office when they were not functioning, as CID Office did not pay the electricity bill and therefore electricity was disconnected by KESC. Who is responsible of paying electricity bills of Police Stations? It is the Police Department and no one else? The provincial interior minister should look into the matter and ask IG Police to submit the report as how many Police Stations have not paid electricity bills and due to what reasons? This is the prerogative of Sindh Government as Police Stations in Karachi are working under Sindh Government. Can the Chief Minister of Sindh fix the responsibility on some one who is responsible for paying electricity bills of all Karachi Police Stations? .
