China-cutting mastermind arrested in Karachi
KARACHI: The Pirabad police of District West arrested on Sunday an alleged mastermind of China-cutting with political support in the metropolis. The arrested suspect was identified as Yamin Khawaja, a resident of Korangi neighbourhood. Police officials accused him of being a mastermind of China-cutting, particularly in Landhi and Korangi localities of the city. Pirabad SHO Ahmed Butt said the initial investigation suggests that the accused has also been involved in the murder of a police sub-inspector, Sajid, who was gunned down in Korangi in 2009. He added that the accused had been a backup support of a political party in the city. The officer further said the accused killed the police officer as the latter was creating hurdles for him in his China-cutting business. A case has been registered while further investigations are underway.
