A terrorist associated with the banned outfit Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan was arrested by a Mominabad police team during a raid for his involvement in six target killings.
District West Senior Superintendent of Police Omar Shahid Hamid told a news conference that the law enforcers had arrested a Sipah-e-Sahaba target killer identified as Muhammad Kashif, alias Kallu, and confiscated the weapon found in his possession.
He said the arrested man was also nominated in a case registered at the Sindh Counter Terrorism Department police station and was declared an absconder by a court.
Sipah-e-Sahaba initially emerged as Anjuman Sipah-e-Sahaba. Later, it renamed itself as Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan. It was banned by the government in 2002, almost 17 years after its birth. However, it re-emerged as Millat-e-Islamia Pakistan, which was also banned in 2003.
