KARACHI: Government has decided to conduct trial of former Lyari gangster and chief of the proscribed People’s Amn Committee in a military court.
According to sources, Baloch was allegedly in contact with foreign spy agencies including the Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and an Iranian intelligence agency.
Baloch was arrested on January 30, 2016 by Sindh Rangers who claimed to have apprehended him from outside Karachi.
“The gang leader was arrested in a targeted operation outside Karachi, in the early hours of Saturday as he attempted to enter the metropolis,” a press release issued by the paramilitary force had stated.
A month later, Sindh’s Home ministry issued a notification regarding the formation of a Joint Investigation Tribunal (JIT) to question the notorious gang war leader about his activities.
