TTP-terrorists-killedTwo Yazidi takfiri nasbi terrorists associated with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were gunned down in a joint operation carried out by the Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) and the Sohrab Goth police on Sunday, said a police official.
The law enforcers received information regarding a group of terrorists attempting to carry out an attack on polio workers.
Taking action on the information received the AVCC and the Sohrab Goth police started patrolling near Afghan Camp and signalled a suspicious car and a rickshaw to stop. However, instead of complying, the terrorists in the vehicles opened fire on the law enforcers and sped away.
The police party chased them and opened fire at the vehicles near Ganna Mandi situated in the New Sabzi Mandi locality. The two terrorists travelling in the rickshaw were injured and captured, while four of their accomplices travelling in the car managed to escape under the cover of fire.
A thorough search of the rickshaw resulted in the police seizing two TT pistols, two hand grenades and 10 kilograms of explosive materials. On the way to the Civil Hospital Karachi, the wounded suspects identified themselves as 28-year-old Qamar Zaman and 35-year-old Moosa Khan. They succumbed to their injuries before reaching the hospital.
Sohrab Goth Station House Officer Syed Shoaib Ali told the Shiite News that the terrorists hailed from Waziristan. They were involved in the killings of polio workers in the last immunization campaign.
