KARACHI: Sindh Rangers took notice of the fresh onslaught against media personnel in Karachi and vowed on Wednesday to arrest the culprits without delay.

According to the Rangers spokesperson, a few people are trying to sabotage the progress of the Karachi operation.

The spokesperson went on to say that the perpetrators behind these attacks will soon be exposed.

Rangers spokesperson added that all resources will be utilized to apprehend the criminals and bring them to justice.

Senior journalist Aftab Alam was killed today when gunmen fired shots at his vehicle in North Karachi, in what police describe as the second targeted attack on a media worker in Karachi in the last 24 hours.

According to Deputy Inspector-General (West) Feroz Shah, Alam was targeted outside his residence in 11-C area of North Karachi – when he was leaving to pickup his children from school.

Shah said that, according to initial reports, the incident appeared to have been properly planned as the two gunmen riding a motorcycle fired a single shot which hit Alam in the head – a signature method used by target-killers.
