A video of the bullet riddled corpse of Baba Ladla, a top gangster of Karachi’s crime-dogged Lyari area, is presently in circulation and telecast by some of the news channels confirming his violent death.
The Express Tribune carried the story on May 13, 2014 quoting reliable sources from across the border that Baba Ladla was intercepted and killed by the Iranian security forces.
Ladla, a ruthless killer who had filmed the brutal slaughter of his rival, had reportedly fled to Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan when Sindh Rangers launched its operation in Karachi.
However, Iranian forces spotted the presence of Ladla at a house near the Konarak Coastal Township and raided it. The desperado tried to flee towards the Pakistani borders where the Iranian border guards intercepted him.
In an ensuing exchange of fire, Baba Ladla was killed and his body was taken to a local hospital where the Iranian security officials prepared a video for record purposes.
