One suspect arrested, another flees following police encounter in Karachi
KARACHI: One suspect was arrested Thursday night following a police encounter in the metropolis' Landhi area, Geo News reported.
The suspect was taken into custody in a wounded state; however, his accomplice managed to escape arrest, police officials said.
Law enforcement agencies revealed that the suspect — from whom they recovered weapons and mobile phones — was allegedly involved in numerous cases of street crime.
On the other hand, Geo News obtained the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage of a looting that took place Thursday night in the city's Aisha Manzil area.
In the video, the suspects — with their faces clearly visible — can be seen looting citizens sitting outside a hotel without any fear. When one of the victims resists, the armed dacoits subject him to a beating.
