Yesterday, Crime Investigation Department’s (CID) anti-terrorism unit had arrested Umair aka Immli from Lyari. Immli is said to be affiliated with the Wasiullah Lakho gang and allegedly involved in several target killing cases. Rangers had put up panaflex banners displaying pictures of notorious Lyari gangsters and appealed the residents to help law enforcers identify them.

Rangers’ personnel had also removed several speed breakers from Tannery Road, Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai Road and other areas in Lyari. To restrict movement for their opponents and law-enforcement agencies, the gangsters of Lyari had established barriers on the entrance and exit routes of narrow streets and constructed speed breakers on main roads.
