KARACHI - Five decomposed and tortured bodies of unknown abductees were found from different areas of Karachi on Thursday while one man was shot dead in separate incident.
Killings and finding of bodies are continued despite the targeted operation going in the City for the last seven months and law enforcers claimed to have arrested some 20,000 alleged criminals.
The shot dead tortured bodies were found from different areas including Buxshani Goth situated in Memon Goth police precincts, Lala riverbed of Sukhan police station, Surjani Town and Korangi police jurisdictions. Police said the victims were abducted and kept in detention where assailants tortured them before killing and throwing their bodies at different places.
All the victims were wearing Shalwar Qameez and apparently looked like the Pushtoons. It is worth mentioning here that two others, apparatnly Pashto speaking, were found from Manghopir area on Wednesday and yet to be identified. Police transported the bodies to morgue for identification after autopsies.
It is worth mentioning here mostly the bodies of Pushtoon found from the City were later claimed by the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban and other affiliated militant groups such as Lashker-e-Jhangvi as their operatives.
TTP, TTP Mohmand and LeJ have accused the security agencies for extrajudicial murders of their terrorists.
Interestingly, since the killing of SP CID Chaudhry Aslam Khan in a suicide attack, no police officer and other security agencies, in the City, wished to claim the encounters with the militants though it was a common practice in the department for getting promotions.
Meanwhile, unidentified armed motorcyclists shot dead a youth near Superhighway, Chakar Hotel in Sohrab Goth police precincts. Police said the victim Faisal Afridi, 26, was the resident of Federal B area. He was working in a local company and was going on a motorbike when gunmen targeted him and fled. The victim was shifted to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead and handed the body over to the family after autopsy.
