Karachi- Rangers today claimed to have arrested a key suspect, involved in Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Zahra Shahid Hussain’s murder.

Acting on a tip-off, Rangers personnel conducted a targeted operation in the surrounding areas of Teen Talwar in Clifton and arrested suspect, Kaleem, who was also said to be wanted in several cases of murder, said a spokesperson from the paramilitary force. The Rangers spokesman said that weapons were also seized from the suspect's possession.
