He said that after the recent terrorist attacks in the city, special teams were formed on the orders of Additional IG CTD that formulated a strategy and a comprehensive plan against terrorism.

“The law enforcers are using the latest technology and intelligence tools and as a result the network of the banned separatist organization, Sindh Revolutionary Army (SRA), was broken.” While searching for the terrorists involved in the bomb blast in Saddar area of Karachi, three persons were traced who were transporting explosives and other equipment to a safe place on the instructions of the commander of the terrorist group within 500 Quarter Road, in limits of Mochko police station.

They were intercepted by the law enforcers on which the accused on motorcycles opened fire on the police party. As a result of retaliatory firing, two terrorists were killed and one escaped.
