KARACHI: The police on Wednesday claimed to have arrested two accused on charges of their alleged involvement in the killing of Raja Shoaib – nephew of former Punjab law minister, Raja Basharat.
According to police, five-men riding two motorbikes were signaled by police to stop during snap-checking in Nazimabad’s Unit 4 area but instead of pulling over the riders tried to escape. A police party chased the men and succeeded in capturing two of them.
