KARACHI: Intelligence agencies apprehended two suspected militants in a raid in Karachi’s Manghopir area, ARY News reported on Monday.
The arrested suspects are said to be members of a militant group headed by Raheem Swati, operating in the city. They have been arrested in suspicion of involvement in killings of police officers in the city, law enforcement sources said.
