KARACHI: At least one officer was martyred while two others got injured during a terrorist attack on Rangers, Wednesday night, in Ilyas Goth neighbourhood of the metropolis’ Korangi area, media reported.
Amid the Rangers’ retaliatory gunfire that ensued, three terrorists were arrested, law enforcement agencies (LEAs) said.
According to a Rangers spokesperson, the raid was conducted based on a confidential tip informing authorities of the presence of target killer Shafiq Kala and his accomplices.
As LEAs reached the site, the terrorists eventually opened fire, martyring Rangers Hawaldar Ilyas and injuring Sepoys Ibrahim and Ameer.
The wounded however, were subsequently moved to Combined Military Hospital Malir.
The terrorists arrested during the Rangers personnel’s retaliatory gunfire comprised Shehbaz (alias Usama), who suffered from injury, as well as Shafiq (alias Kala) and Aleemuddin.
Immediately afterward, as a further contingent was called in, Rangers personnel cordoned off the area and commenced a search operation, which resulted in three other suspects being taken into custody. They were moved to an undisclosed location for further investigations.
