KARACHI: The city police on Friday claimed arresting over 100 suspects involved in terrorist activities and said that it had started an indiscriminate operation against terrorists, DawnNews reported.

City police chief Saud Mirza said that although fresh incidents of violence that had started from Wednesday could not be completely stopped, terming it a failure of policing would not be correct.

Police would conduct a focused operation in the affected areas and the places where the victims’ bodies were found, he added.

While reiterating that terrorists would be taken to task, Mirza expressed the hope that normalcy would soon return to the city.

Moreover, police and Rangers claimed rounding up 25 suspects involved in an armed clash that took place in the Godhra Colony of New Karachi. There were also reports of more arrests from other parts of the city.
