KARACHI: At least eight people were killed during incidents of violence in Karachi during the past 12 hours, DawnNews reported.
Moreover, 75 suspected individuals had been arrested by law enforcement agencies carrying out search operations in the city.
Earlier on Monday, fear gripped parts of Gulshan-i-Iqbal, Gulistan-i-Jauhar and a few housing societies in Scheme-33 after armed attacks and an exchange of fire killed at least four people and left at least five wounded, police and witnesses said.
The firing incidents that erupted about an hour before sunset continued into Monday night, prompting the police and the Rangers only to cordon off the affected areas and launch a snap checking of motorists.
Showing unawareness about the motive and people behind the firing, police said they had spotted the affected areas and would launch a ‘search operation’.
