KARACHI: Sindh Rangers arrested five suspected terrorists of banned outfit Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) from different areas of province on Wednesday.
Spokesman of Rangers said that the paramilitary force conducted targeted raids on the hideouts of proscribed BLA in different parts of interior Sindh and arrested five suspects.
It is worth to mention that the targeted raids were conducted after the Interior Ministry gave a 60-day extension in the special policing powers of Rangers in Sindh on Tuesday in a meeting chaired by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
The Rangers official termed the arrested men as ‘hard-core terrorists’.
The Rangers spokesmen claimed that the arrested suspects were involved in attacks on Army and FC convoys and blasting gas pipelines.
He said that the security personnel also seized weapons from their custody. However, the identity of arrested militants has not been disclosed.
Last week, Corps Commander Karachi Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar visited Sindh Rangers Headquarters where he said the paramilitary’s role was the “backbone” of the operation against terrorism in the metropolis.
