KARACHI: A judicial magistrate on Saturday remanded four suspected militants of the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan in police custody till April 20.

The crime investigation department (CID) of the Sindh police claimed to have arrested Aslam Mehsud, Abbas Khan, Rasool Khan and Ali Zaman in a Manghopir locality on April 12 after an encounter and seized arms and explosive material from their possession.

The CID police produced the suspects before the court of Judicial Magistrate (west) Sohail Leghari and sought their custody on the ground that they had confessed their involvement in some cases and further investigation in this regard was required.

The court handed them over to the CID police for one week.

They were booked in a number of cases under Sections 13-D of the Arms Ordinance, 4/5 of the Explosive Substance Act and 353 (criminal assault to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 324 (attempted murder) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

The CID also claimed that the suspects were associated with the banned TTP and involved in the Abbas Town bombing.

I don't think it is true. If all the claims of arrests by the police in the past were correct then why do we continue to have terror attacks at regular interval in Karachi. Police & ranger have failed in bringing peace in Karachi
