KARACHI – The Special Investigation Unit (SIU) of Karachi Police has arrested five alleged target killers from Tariq Road areas who were working as a private office in the famous commercial area.
The announcement came from the Additional Inspector General of Police (AIG) Shahid Hayat Khan on Friday afternoon.

The mastermind of the target killer gang was identified as Muhammad Irfan alias Baba Jee.
Shahid Hayat also revealed that pictures of at least twenty people were recovered from the office which the group wanted to target. The group was using licensed weapons to target their victims, added AIG Shahid.
