KARACHI - Police have failed to take action against the militants hiding in various localities of Gadap Town, sources complained to The Nation here on Monday. As per report, hundreds of the displaced families and individuals from the terror-hit tribal areas of the NWFP province have settled in the metropolis. These people have found shelters in different parts of Gadap Town including Machchar Colony, Yasrab Colony, Afghan Camp, Kochi Camp, Janjar Goth, Gull Goth, Faqir Goth, Jamali Goth, Chanaiser Goth and other localities. It is pertinent to mention here that a number of bloody incidents have taken place in Gadap Town due the presence of militants in the area. A few months back, four policemen were killed and a dozen others sustained serious injures when militants opened fire on a team of Anti-Violence and Crime Unit (AVCU). The team had entered the area to recover renowned filmmaker Staish Anand, whom the militants had kidnapped for ransom. In another incident at a local bank in New Subzimandi area, security guards killed a suicide bomber, who was allegedly a resident of the Janjar Goth. Source further said that police were reluctant to point out the presence of militant groups in the area. There are ample indications alarming the law enforcers about the gravity of the situation but no concrete action has so far been taken against the militants. The presence of such criminal elements constitute a serious threat to the lives of citizens. 10 held in separate cases Police have arrested two culprits accused in the charges of robbing the house of former Inspector General of Police, Sindh, Bashir Ahmed Siddiquis sister and killing her servant.
