KARACHI: Rangers operation in Orangi town area of Karachi was interrupted by a heavy bomb blast on Tuesday killing a number of militants, ARY News reported.

Rangers personnel were busy in a search operation in Orangi Town when the area was rocked by a huge explosion killing four terrorists present inside the hideout.

The blast resulted in wounding one Rangers personnel and a minor passer by.

One terrorist was nabbed in injured condition and a huge cache of arms was recovered from the place. Bomb Disposal Squad denied the earlier report that the blast was a suicide attack claiming that the bomb was remote controlled.

The area was cordoned off as the Rangers personnel were busy in a search operation in Faqir Colony and Preshan Chowk localities of the area.

People of the area and media personnel are directed to stay away from the spot while Rangers contingents are arriving in large numbers to continue the operation.

It must be noted that the search operation was initiated on the information gathered from the suspects of Safoora Chowrangi bus attack.

The operation is still going on while the law enforcement personnel have confirmed the death of two terrorists present inside the house.

Orangi Town is considered one of the most difficult areas to operate in Karachi as it is heavily populated with people belonging to different ethnic backgrounds.
