The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) Sindh during a raid on Thursday claimed to have arrested two Muttahida Qaumi Movement London (MQM-London) target killers.
According to the details, the arrested shooters were identified as Muhammad Zahid Khan son of Muhammad Faiz Ali and Waseem Ali son of Muhammad Ali.
The arrested target killers were wanted by the police in several heinous crimes and they have confessed to them.
The shooters killed a policeman Syed Khalid Ahmed at Sarwar Shaheed road in Karachi.
Further investigation from the arrested target killers of MQM-London is underway.
Back in November CTD announced the arrest of five alleged target killers associated with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-London.
DIG Omer Shahid Hamid said they were tipped off about the presence of target killers after which raids were carried out for their arrest. He said the CTD had apprehended five men identified as Muhammad Ali alias Ali, Salman alias Dhobi, Akhtar, Umairullah and Shahzad.
An investigation revealed that the arrested men were associated with the MQM-London and were working for Ajmal Pahari and Kashif David, he added. He said one of the arrested men, Muhammad Ali, was a close associate of Ajmal Pahari, who was trained by India’s intelligence agency RAW. He said Ali was actively involved in targeted killings in Karachi from 1995 to 2005.
He said Ali had disclosed during an interrogation that he along with his associates had killed policeman Mohammed Ali in 1997 in Orangi Town. “He also murdered Faisal alias Parratha in Orangi Town in the same year.”
