    Rangers sepoy martyred, 5 terrorists killed in Lyari shootout

    A Rangers personnel was martyred and five suspected terrorists were gunned down in an exchange of fire in Karachi’s Lyari area late on Tuesday.
    As per details, Rangers were on a routine patrol in Lyari's Zikri Para when unknown armed men attacked the security personnel with hand grenades and automatic weapons on Tuesday night. As a result one Rangers Jawan Fawad embraced martyrdom and four others sustained injuries, while five suspected militants were also gunned down in retaliation. Efforts were being made to determine the identity of dead terrorists.
    Soon after the incident, a heavy contingent of police and Rangers were called in the area to launch a search operation to apprehend the accomplices of the terrorists, who reportedly fled taking the advantage of darkness. Police and rangers cordoned off the area where the encounter occurred and  sealed the entry and exit points.
    The paramilitary force claimed to recover automatic weapons and hand grenades, including four Kalashnikovs from the slain militants.
    Taking the notice of the incident, Home Minister Sohail Anwar Sial  and Sindh Inspector General A.D Khowaja directed the DIG South to submit a detailed inquiry report on an immediate basis.
