A heavy contingent of police, in an ongoing operation in katcha area of Tangwani, Sindh, has so far arrested over 10 suspected persons besides demolishing and then setting fire to several dens of dacoits and other criminals, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.

Police are conducting the operation by sealing the entry and exit points of various areas, while armoured vehicles have also been used in the operation.

SSP Bashir Ahmad Brohi, who is supervising the operation, has said that it will continue until the elimination of all outlaws in the katcha area.

It is pertinent to mention here that katcha areas in Sindh and neighbouring Punjab have become safe havens for dacoits who carry out their activities with complete impunity.

Despite the fact that the Punjab and Sindh Police have lately carried out an operation against them, they are still very much there and kidnap people for ransom from across the country.    

Only a couple of days ago, 24News had reported that dacoits in the katcha area of Punjab, who had kidnapped two persons after luring them to Rojhan a few days ago, had thrown their bodies into the River Indus after mur­dering them brutally.

The dacoits shot Ahsan and Shehzad, both masons by profes­sion, dead when they saw them fleeing.

The dacoits had called them to Rojhan, saying their ser­vices were required for the con­struction of a roof.

While body of Ahsan has been fished out of the river, search for the body of Shehzad was continuing till last reports came in.
