The Karachi police claims that it has apprehended a “militant”, alleging that the arrestee has been involved in several attacks on the security forces. The Voice for Misssing Persons of Sindh has refuted the claim, arguing that the said detainee has been missing for the past six months.

The police say that they launched a search operation in Ittehad Town of Karachi on intelligence reports and successfully cornered an “India-backed dangerous militant.”

According to police, the arrestee, identified as Mansoor alias Aneel, had been allegedly involved in attacks on the Pakistani security forces. The police say that they had obtained intelligence that Mansoor had an affiliation with a “separatist” organization. He had been trained in India in militancy and involved in various attacks on the security forces.

On the other hand, the Voice for Missing Persons of Sindh – a rights groups advocating for the safe release of Sindhi missing persons – has refuted the Karachi police’s claims, arguing that Mansoor Junejo has been missing for the past six months.

The rights group says that Junejo had been abducted by the Pakistani forces six months ago; the forces are now trying to paint him a “terrorist” by feigning his arrest. The police’s claims are based on lies, they said.

The group further said that the forces have abducted numerous people from different parts of Sindh; they are now trying to associate these missing persons with armed groups. They said that the forces have also employed this strategy in the past – they have abducted political workers from throughout the Sindh and then feigned their arrest under false accusations.
