The ATC said 15 BLA members fled in the 2018 Chinese consulate attack | Instant News


An anti-terrorism court issued on Saturday warrants for life arrest for 15 members of the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) accused in cases relating to the 2018 attack on the Chinese consulate after declaring they fled.

During the trial at Karachi Central Prison, the court ordered the relevant authorities to confiscate all of the defendants’ movable and non-transferable property and put their sketches on display.

Defendants who were on the run and were declared to have fled included Marriot, Alidad Buledi, Commander Sharif, Rashid Hussain and Sameer, among others.

In addition, Ahmed Hasnain, Nadir Khan, Ali Ahmed, Abdul Latif and Aslam, also suspects in the case, have been arrested.

On 23 November 2018, three militants attempted to enter the Chinese consulate in the Clifton Karachi area but were shot dead during a meeting with law enforcement personnel. The gun and grenade attacks resulted in the deaths of two policemen and two visa applicants. The attack was claimed by BLA.

According to police, the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and other foreign entities provided financial assistance for the attack.

They said two of the defendants arrested, including Latif, had confessed to their involvement in the attack.

Police said the defendants admitted that they had provided weapons and ammunition to one of the terrorists who were killed who carried out the attack and resumed the site.

The two gave their statements before a judge under Section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code, police said.

They added that they would seek help from Interpol to catch the escapes.

The CTD claims to have arrested four TTP terrorists, BLA from Karachi | Instant News

KARACHI: The security services and police on Wednesday claimed to have arrested four suspected terrorists from banned organizations during the joint raid in Karachi, ARY NEWS reported.

The Sindh police’s Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) said that three of the terror suspects were members of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), while the others were from the banned Baloch Liberation Army (BLA).

“They traveled from Afghanistan to Balochistan and then arrived in Karachi,” police said adding that the three TTP terrorists were staying at a hotel in Banaras while a fourth accomplice joined them after bringing explosives for them.

The CTD said they had recovered 60 kilograms of explosives, 16 detonators and an explosive cable from their possession during the raids. “We also found weapons on the indication the suspect was arrested,” they said.

The terrorists are trained in Afghanistan and assigned to carry out terror acts in Karachi, the LEA said adding that they also have IDs and passwords from social media platforms to receive their possible targets from their handlers.

CTD officials claimed that BLA and TTP planned to jointly carry out a terror attack, which was thwarted due to the timely actions of the LEA. The accused used to monitor activity on media and social media and was also involved in previous attacks in the country.

Law enforcement authorities have carried out raids recently to destroy terror cells in the city.

In November 22nd, LEA thwarted terrorism plans and arrested three terrorists of the prohibited group Tehrik-e-Taliban.

According to a Rangers paramilitary spokesman, in a joint intelligence-based operation, the Sindh Rangers and Police carried out raids on Gulshan-e-Maymar in Karachi and arrested three terrorists affiliated with the outlawed group Tehrik-e-Taliban.

“The defendants have been identified as Yaseen, Ikramullah alias Faisal and Mohammad Khalid alias Umar,” said a Rangers spokesman.

“Two of the three men who were arrested recently returned from Afghanistan,” according to the spokesman. They are planning a terrorist attack in Karachi, Rangers stated.
