KARACHI: Notorious terrorist and leader of the Lyari gang war, Uzair Baloch has made startling revelations in court, admitting that he was involved in the leakage of sensitive security information to foreign intelligence agencies including Iranian intelligence.
While giving his confessional statement regarding his crimes in missing persons case before the magistrate today, Baloch said that he provided information regarding army installations and officials to foreign agents.
He further added that he was guaranteed full safety by the Iranian spy agencies.
The gang war leader also confessed that he had political support for the criminal activities and he was assured a safe place to escape.
“I had political support for these activities, including transfer and posting of favourite police officers,” he said.
Baloch, who is involved in the murder of hundreds of people, including police personnel and other gang war leaders, was arrested by the Interpol on Dec 29, 2014, from Dubai.
He was later arrested from the outskirts of Karachi by the Rangers personnel during what the paramilitary forces claimed was a raid.
PTIs ‘ELECTABLE’ Doctor gives citizen a dose of Naya Pakistan on 14th Aug.!
KARACHI: Additional GS of PTI – claimant of transforming Purana into Naya Pakistan – has issued a Show Cause Notice to Dr. Imran Ali Shah (MPA, PS-129) who has been videotaped slapping a citizen named Daud Chohan, an employee of CAA, in the North Nazimabad area here today.
I never wanted to take law in my hand however it was in a spur of a moment that i momentarily lost my cool and reacted in a way that brought embarrassment to my position, my party and my supporters. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/nbnsmqGC11

Thereby, I sincerely and unconditionally apologise to Mr. Dawood and my voters and suppprters for my behaviour. I hope that you all will accept my apology and I promise to observe my conduct that is expected of me both morally and officially by the party's code of conduct. 2/2 pic.twitter.com/zeEnoMgOo0

The doctor has been asked to present his version in the next 24 hours failing which his case would be referred to the disciplinary committee for appropriate action.
Nominated governor of Sindh Imran Imran Ismail has called Daud Chohan and apologized on behalf of PTI. He said that Imran Khan has taken notice of the incident and no such incident will occur again.
Cynics wonder is it the only occasion when the PTI’s Doctor has given a dose to a citizen? Or it is the first instance that he has been captured beating a citizen by a mobile user?
Moreover, citizens talking to NPTV have insinuated that was not the only electable PTI ‘lawmaker’ who is imbibed with this kind of mindset?
Meanwhile, sources privy to NPTV has informed that the Doctor, who has shamelessly rejected the evident video saying he had only pushed the citizen, knocked on the door of Daud Chohan’s house (along with PTI’s Firdous Shamim Naqvi) begging forgiveness.
And Chohan has accepted his unconditional apology saying he would not lodge any complaint against him in the court of law!
Bewildered citizens ask: i) What else could a common citizen have done? ii) Would the mighty PTI Doc had gone to the commoner’s home if his slapping ritual was not videotaped and gone viral?
Chohan has said that his daughter was hospitalized and he was going to see her with his family when the incident happened.
DIG East has ordered an inquiry against the PTI’s Doctor and his guard.
In this video message, PTI’s Doctor claims that Chauhan had hit an (invisible) POOR MAN’S CAR [and he being a savior of the INVISIBLE POOR MAN (WHO WAS POOR ENOUGH TO DRIVE A CAR!) had to attack Chauhan along with his armed guards who later prevented Chauhan from following him!]
Sweden: Masked vandals torch dozens of cars before elections!
STOCKHOLM: Up to 80 cars were set on fire overnight across western Sweden by masked vandals, police said today, in what they suspect was a coordinated attack weeks before a general election.
Most of the cars were burned at around 20 locations in Sweden’s second largest city of Gothenburg late Monday.
Authorities said no suspects have been arrested so far and no motive has been established.
But police said they had identified several people in connection with the blazes, which they believe were organized on social media.
“We’ve never seen these many cars set on fire before,” Hans Lippens, a police spokesman in western Sweden, told AFP.
The incident triggered outrage among Swedish politicians who are busy campaigning for the September 9 general election.
“I’m furious. My question to (the perpetrators) is: what the hell are you doing?” Social Democratic Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told public broadcaster Swedish Radio on Tuesday.
“You’re ruining things for yourselves, your parents and your neighborhoods,” Lofven said, adding the incident “looked very coordinated, almost like a military operation”.
Cars set ablaze is common in Sweden. In Stockholm’s suburbs alone, such crimes happen almost on a daily basis, usually attributed to disadvantaged youths.
Last year, 1,457 cars were “deliberately” set on fire across Sweden, compared to 1,641 in 2016, according to the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency’s figures.
“Sweden has tolerated this for too long. This must end now,” Ulf Kristersson, leader of the conservative opposition party, the Moderates, wrote on his Facebook account.
Last year in February, two days after US President Donald Trump’s baffling comments linking the crime to immigration in Sweden, riots broke out in the immigrant-heavy northern Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby.
Dozens of youths clashed with police after they arrested a suspected drug dealer in Rinkeby. The rioters threw stones at police, burned cars and looted shops.
