KARACHI: Rangers raided Sunni Tehreek’s headquarters in Karachi for a second time this week, confiscating records.

According to details, Rangers raided the ST headquarter early on Sunday morning, confiscating records pertaining to Fitra and Zakat collection. There were no reports of any arrests made.

The raid comes days after a similar raid on the facility by Rangers on June 18, 2015, when the paramilitary outfit detained nearly a dozen ST members.

Those ST members remain in Rangers' detention.

This is the third such raid on ST headquarters since the Karachi operation first began on September 5, 2013.

Following Sunday's raid, the Rangers did not issue a statement, as has become customary for the outfit.

However, sources within the paramilitary unit said that the raid had been conducted based on information collected while questioning the detained ST men.
