In Pakistan’s Karachi, four hours after the horrific attack on the police line in Peshawar, at least five militants and four individuals, including rangers and police officers, were murdered, according to a report by Geo News.

Officials stated that out of 5 militants, 3 committed suicide by blowing themselves up, while the other 2 were killed in a shootout on Friday.

The Terror Attack of Pakistan

In the latest attack on security officers as terrorism grips the country, 18 people were hurt, officials revealed to Geo News. However, the LEAs were able to clean the city’s police chief’s five-story office after a lengthy operation.

Top government officials have strongly condemned the event, but Defence Minister Khawaja Asif told Geo News that “condemnations are not enough” and that extremists must face heavy punishment.

The assault started at 7:10 p.m., and police and Rangers personnel gradually evacuated the five-story structure before sweeping the office by 10:46 p.m.

Following the violent attack on the Additional Inspector General (AIG) Officer of the Karachi Police Office (KPO), Rangers and police forces have launched a joint operation against the terrorists, according to ARY News.

A spokesperson for the Rangers claimed that the paramilitary troops’ quick response force (QRF) had surrounded and taken positions around the KPO headquarters. After this, rangers and police launched an operation to purge terrorists from the KPO. The spokesperson further explained that the process was carried out due to the alleged presence of eight to ten terrorists in the office of the Karachi police chief.

An anonymous police officer informed Geo News that the assailants entered the office wearing police uniforms, a similar strategy to the Peshawar mosque suicide attack, which left more than 80 people dead. According to Geo News, eighteen people were hurt in the meantime, including Rangers police officers.

Several bullets were fired at the main office, which is close to the Saddar Police Station, according to police authorities.

The Karachi Traffic Police closed both sides of Shara-e-Faisal between the Avari Hotel and Nursery in response to the terrorist attack.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah asserted, in an exclusive interview with Geo News, that the Peshawar terror incident has raised concerns about general security. However, in every part of the nation, “all the institutions are completely vigilant,” he continued.

The security chief emphasised the importance of taking extra precautions to fend off the recent terrorism wave. He disclosed that “the police have claimed that the terrorists launched a grenade after parking the car and utilised that as a cover for entering the building.”

The federal capital’s IG, Akbar Nasir Khan, acknowledged that security is on high alert and that all officers have been told to remain in their specific regions. However, he added that officials have been exposed to keep all significant buildings and the Red Zone on high alert and that checking entry and departure routes inside the city has escalated.
