KARACHI: The main character of the Lyari gang war — Rehman Baloch alias Rehman Dakait — and his three accomplices were killed in an encounter with the police in Steel Town here late on Sunday night, police said.

SP Investigations, East Zone, Chaudhry Aslam, had received a tip-off that Rehman Dakait, along with his three associates, was coming to Karachi from Hyderabad through the Link Road in Steel Town. The police took positions there and a shootout took place when the gangsters arrived. As a result, Rehman Dakait and his three associates – Nazir alias Palla, Aurangzaib alias Babu and Aqil – were injured. They were later shifted to the Jinnah Hospital where they succumbed to their injuries.

Three Kalashnikovs and three hand grenades were recovered from the spot. Rehman Dakait was wanted by the police in over 300 cases of murder, kidnappings for ransom, diesel smuggling, etc. His name was included in the CID’s Red Book and he had a head money of Rs 5 million.

Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Waseem Ahmed said the man killed was Rehman Dakait, who had been shot dead in an encounter with the Bin Qasim police. The bodies of Rehman Dakait and others had been shifted to the Jinnah Post-Graduate Medical Centre, the CCPO said.

Besides, the police had set Rs 5 million bounty over his head, the senior policeman said. The CCPO said large contingents of police and rangers had been deployed in Lyari to avoid any untoward incident following the killing of Rehman Dakait.

The Sindh government had launched an operation against his gang, which came out virtually unscathed by the last operation in the area compared to its rival group. Over 250 families had to leave Lyari due to the gang war between the groups of Rehman Dakait and Arshad Pappu.

Zardari is a big Dakait in actual.

Whatever happened with Rehman is extremely hurtful.Zardari used him and then killed him for Altaf Hussain the biggest murderer.Rehman was so kind to poor people and did a lot for them which even our Presidents have not tried and if Rehamn did cruel acts that were all as per the request of Zardari and other politicians.So Mr.choudhry Aslam who killed him in a very unkind way should be arrested and treated the same way.There is a law and if its implemented in Pakitsan then there should be a punishment.We requested Choudhry iftikhar to please look into this bad dead and the way our police lies and treat with mankind, the police Mr.Aslam along with his group is totally speaking lie and untrue picture ..but the actual is they kidnapped arrested and treated badly by hitting them alot and then finally killing them by so near that every one can feel from the pictures.this is not the way to treat with citizens...first they should make our politicians so that they can do something not everything but something for country but infact our president is big Ghunda who even killed his wife Benazir.POOR PAKISTAN.POOR DEMOCRACY.SHAMEFULL ACT OF MR.ASLAM..SHAME ON YOU ALL.
