“The gangwar suspect, Tauseef alias Bakri, a ruthless violent criminal from Shiraz Comrade Gang, was killed in a late night action, police told Samaa.
According to a spokesman for police, following a credible lead, the lawmen engaged the outlaw in his stronghold.
“We cornered him in seedy Kalri neighbourhood. Though we met with heavy resistance, but our battle-hardened lieutenants outgunned the gangster shortly after”, another official said.
Tauseef was wanted for at least five counts of first degree murder.
Gangs of Lyari have a long history of territorial wars.
It is said that if these gangsters are not busy going about their routine crimes then they are most probably fighting each other for greater control over the area.
Despite of dozens of crackdowns, the gang war related violence, which has so far claimed hundreds of lives, continues to thrive in Lyari.
