Pakistan Army took custody of the notoriously infamous Lyari Gang War figure Uzair Baloch. He was arrested by Rangers last year outside Karachi.
Here are the tweets by General of the ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor on the arrest of Uzair Baloch.
Uzair Baloch Political Affiliation
The Lyari gang war leader was once close to the Pakistan Peoples Party and had confessed his involvement in the killing of rival group members. He was involved in the killing of police officials, and MQM workers and supporters.
He also admitted that many of the Police Officers in Sindh were working under his influence. Uzair Baloch once led the Peoples Aman Committee or PAC and was declared one of the most wanted criminals by Sindh Government.
United Arab Emirates Police detained Uzair Baloch on Interpol’s red warrant on Dec 29, 2015. He remained in the custody of Abu Dhabi police for three months before he was brought back to Pakistan.
Uzair Baloch Kulbhushan Jadhav Connection
A recent startling revelation made by law enforcement agencies said that Uzair Baloch was supporting Kulbhushan Jadhav in his subversive and terrorism-related activities against the state of Pakistan.
A report filed by a JIT (Joint Investigation Team) said that Uzair Baloch was spying for an Iranian spy agency and it also stated that a military court must try him. The report also urged NAB and FIA to look into the matters of land grabbing related to Uzair Baloch.
Pakistan has awarded death sentence to Kulbhushan Jadhav for its anti-Pakistan terrorist activities claiming lives of innocent Pakistanis.
Pakistan Must Act Decisively Against Terrorism
Pakistan is one of the worst terrorism affected countries in the world. Thousands of civilians, military personnel, and law enforcement agencies have lost their lives to terrorism.
Pakistan Army has taken decisive action against the terrorism in the country by conducting stage-wise operations.
The last yet one of the most critical stages of the operation against terrorism in Pakistan is Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad consolidating intelligence and eliminating the threat of terrorism from the country. The operation is aimed at securing the country’s borders.
All political parties in the country must come on the same page when it comes to terrorism. All people behind terrorism in any manner, shape or form must be brought to justice. The entire nation has suffered for years, and it is the time that all stakeholders must come together to get rid of this menace once and forever.
