Rangers foil attempt to jailbreak, arrest many suspects

KARACHI: Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) have foiled a plot to help escape some dangerous terrorists from Central Jail Karachi.

The Rangers unearthed a tunnel being made in a house in Ghousia Colony adjacent to the jail and busted the terrorist network, said Col.Tahir Mehmood of Rangers (Sindh) while addressing a press conference here on Monday.

He said the Rangers took prompt action on intelligence information about the jailbreak plan and raided the house from where the tunnel leading into the jail was being dug.

The Rangers arrested some suspects from the house who were involved in digging the tunnel and after interrogation their accomplices were also arrested from various parts of the city, Col Tahir said.

The plan was made by a group of a banned outfit that wanted to free their prisoners from jail through the tunnel, he added.
