Senior superintendent of police, Korangi, said the criminals were arrested from Korangi Industrial Area. He confirmed that the culprits had so far committed 101 robberies in more than couple of cities.

Three hand grenades, three pistols and cash were recovered from their possession.

The SSP said the criminals would change ‘target cities’ after committing 25 robberies in each city. He said the gang comprises 15 criminals involved in snatchings in different cities including Multan and Bahawalpur.

Police said the muggers would target people landing from foreign countries besides depriving people of their valuables in street snatchings. Last month, the Karachi police had arrested two dacoits, who later turned out to be graduates of a reputed university.

Ahad graduated in B.Com from the University of Karachi, the cop said, adding that another suspect had done a diploma in fashion designing from a private university.
