Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LJ) terrorists arrested over targeted Shia killings

(From Medianowonline.com)
Karachi (Pakistan),  Oct. 11 -   Terrorists of the banned terrorists religious outfit, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LJ), have been arrested over their involvement in targeted sectarian violence and weapons recovered from their custody, claimed Capital City Police Officer (CCPO)-Karachi Fayyaz Ahmed Leghari on Sunday at a press conference held at the Central Police Office.

He informed that During the course of investigations, a police team under the supervision of SSP Investigation West Zone Khurram Waris on a tip off conducted a raid on Saturday night in Iqbal Market Block-D Sector-11 1/2, and after an encounter, arrested two wanted terrorists.

The men have been identified as Naseem Haider alias Ferron and Asif Rasheed alias Dumba. The police also recovered one SMG, two TT pistols, one 9mm pistol, one repeater gun and several rounds from their custody. Both the accused have been shifted to the investigation unit for interrogation.

While CCPO Leghari described the accused Haider as a hardened terrorist of the banned LJ, other officials said that Haider joined the LJ group in 1997, and was sent to Afghanistan to receive training from notorious terrorist Khalid Bin Waleed. Once his education in handling various kinds of weapons concluded, he was sent back to Karachi with the orders to kill people from various sects.

From 2000 to 2003, Haider was involved in a number of sectarian killings, but was arrested in 2003 by the Sindh police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) over his involvement in five cases of sectarian killing. He was released on bail by a court in 2007 for want of evidence, and subsequently, restarted his criminal activities.

The CCPO added that Haider was heading a group of terrorists active in Karachi, and was involved in killing Shia and Ahmadi doctors. After his release, he met up with his associates, including Waseem alias Baroodi, and they formed four to five-member cells.

Haider was planning an attack on a worshiping place of the Ahmadis before his attack, the CCPO said. Further, he said, the held suspect is a named accused in two FIRs; one lodged at Iqbal Market Police Station in connection with Maulana Ghulam Mohammed’s murder, while the other registered in the Pakistan Bazaar Police Station for killing a man named Shahzad. Further probe is under way.

It may be noted here that the Shia Community of Orangi Town area had demanded the arrest of Naseem alias Ferron and Asif alias Dumba. They were former members of Muttahida Qaumi Movements student wing APMSO and now performing their terrorist’s activities under the cover of Sipah-e-Sahaba’s and Laskhar-e-Jhangvi.

The area people informed the Shiite News via their emails that these terrorists were involved in the killing of scores of Shia’s community in Orangi Town and local organizational setup of MQM, a coalition party of PPP, was also supported these terrorists.

Some people said that they were also involved in the assassination of MQM’s Shia MPA from Organi Town Shaheed Raza Haider.
