Pakistan Observer - - FRONT PAGE - IR­FAN ALIGI

KARACHI—Pakistan Rangers Sindh have ar­rested a most wanted tar­get killer al­legedly be­long­ing to the Mut­tahida Qaumi move­ment (MQM) from near Nine Zero.

The ar­rested sus­pect tar­get killer is iden­ti­fied as Muham­mad Kashif aka David. Colonel Faisal of the para­mil­i­tary Rangers, who led the tar­geted op­er­a­tion on a tip-off, as he claimed while talk­ing to the news­men, said that a huge cache of arms and am­mu­ni­tion was also re­cov­ered from a house on iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the ac­cused. The en­tire area was cor­doned off with the com­mence­ment of the tar­geted op­er­a­tion and none was al­lowed to en­ter or leave the Mor Park area. The Rangers had also taken 5 other sus­pects in cus­tody.

Colonel Faisal of the Rangers said that the ac­cused was on top of the list of most wanted tar­get killers and had been in Dubai for a longer time and had re­turned to Karachi a few days ago. He told the news­men that the Rangers had re­cov­ered Kalash­nikovs in large num­ber, light ma­chine guns, rocket pro­pel­ling guns and a huge cache of am­mu­ni­tion.

Rangers re­cov­ered Rangers uni­form in large num­ber, as well.

The Rangers pro­duced the ac­cused Kashif in the an­titer­ror court and sought a 90-day pre­ven­tive de­ten­tion, which the ATC ap­proved.

On the other hand, the MQM leader Nadeem Nus­rat and Wasay Jalil re­jected the Rangers claim for ar­rest­ing the ac­cused Kashif aka David and said that the ac­cused was ar­rested from Dubai six months ago and was brought to Karachi where the Rangers kept him in de­ten­tion.
