KARACHI: Chief of the Crime Investigation Department (CID) of Sindh Police Chaudhry Muhammad Aslam was killed in deadly attack in Karachi on Thursday, officials said.

According to police officials, three other policemen were killed and several others wounded in powerful bomb blast.

The vehicle of Chaudhry Aslam, was targeted by a bomb blast at Liyari Express way in Issa Nagri area of Karachi.

Blast was so powerful that it destroyed two police vehicles completely while nearby buildings were also damaged.

Blast also damaged Flyover Bridge which shows the intensity of the blast.

Chaudhry Aslam, was on hit list of terrorists as a day before he killed three dangerous Taliban militants in encounter in Karachi.

He has killed and arrested many key terrorists commanders in past. Taliban had targeted him on many occasions.

Last year his vehicle was also targeted at the same place where he killed in Thursday blast.

In 2011, eight people were killed and several were injured in a suicide attack on the residence of Chaudhry Aslam on September 19.

In 2010 the terrorists blew up the head office of CID in Karachi with the aim to eliminate Aslam and other senior officials. Aslam and other senior officials were not in the building at the time. The government had enhanced the security of Aslam who had been working against the Taliban terrorists.

As the role of the CID chief is very important in taking action against the Taliban, there were threats that terrorists could hit him any time. Aslam had vowed to carry on his mission of eliminating the Taliban from Karachi.

Meanwhile, Sindh Chief Minister, Syed Qaim Ali Shah Thursday announced Rs20 million for the family of Chaudhry Aslam, the brave SP CID who was martyred in a bomb attack in the provincial metropolis earlier today.

The CM also announced Rs2 million each for the families of the escorting cops who lost their lives in the tragic incident, said a spokesman of CM Sindh.

He said the provincial chief executive expressing shock and grief on the loss of precious lives, ordered IG Sindh and Additional IG to launch an investigation into the carnage.

The spokesman said the bereaved members of the victims will also be given plots and government service besides provision of other support and security.

Moreover, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inaam Memon while paying tributes to martyred SP Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Chaudhry Aslam said that Karachi police have lost a brave officer.

"Residents of the metropolis salute him for his fearless fight and martyrdom against the terrorists," said Memon.

Sharjeel Memon expressed deep grief and sorrow over sudden martyrdom of CID's SP Chaudhry Aslam and paid tributes to his long services in the police department against the criminal elements and terrorists.

"Police have lost a brave police officer today but the courage of police department is still high and fully intact," said the provincial information minister.

"The terrorists launch their attacks after complete homework and close monitoring of the attack side," added Memon.

End.
