Karachi ATC sentences RAW-trained criminals to 14 years
KARACHI: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Tuesday sentenced two criminals allegedly trained by Indian intelligence agency RAW to 14 years in prison, ARY News reported.
According to details, two Muttahida Qaumi Movement-London (MQM-L) members Faheem alias Mirchi and Nasir alias Khajji were sentenced to 14 years in prison over possession of illegal arms and explosives.
ATC announced the sentence in the light of evidence provided by prosecution team of Sindh Rangers which claimed that they were trained by Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
Rangers had arrested the duo in 2016 from Usmanabad near the Garden area on receiving credible information about their alleged involvement in targeted killing and other terror-related activities.
Fahim, a member of MQM’s Ranchore Line Sector, had reportedly confessed to killing 12 people, including law enforcers, and carrying out armed and bomb attacks on police and government installations including rocket attacks at the Sindh secretariat in 1993 and police headquarters in Garden. He was also said to have been involved in planning an attack on the central jail and in land-grabbing across the city.
Nasir alias Khajji was a member of unit 32 of Lyari sector and he also allegedly confessed to killing four people, including his accomplices as well as political rivals, besides taking extortion money and collecting sacrificial animal hides.
