Jaish-e-Mohammad Militant Maulana Raheem Ullah Tariq was reportedly shot dead by ‘unknown men’ in the Orangi town area of Karachi.
He was killed when he was on his way to attend a religious gathering. As per the reports, unidentified people opened fire at him.
Going by the reports, police officials stated that the incident seemed to be a targeted killing.
The incident comes just days after Akram Khan Ghazi, a senior commander of the Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), was shot dead by unidentified bike-borne assailants.
The incident occurred in the Bajaur district of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Ghazi, believed to be a recruiter for the LeT, was responsible for radicalizing terrorists who infiltrated the Kashmir Valley in multiple groups over recent years.
In the recent past, several such terrorists have been killed under mysterious circumstances.
On November 7, 2018 terror attack mastermind Khwaja Shahid was found beheaded near the Line of Control in Pakistan.
In September, Riyaz Ahmad, a top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander and the key figure behind the Dhangri terror attack inside Al-Qudus mosque in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir’s Rawalkot.
In March, unidentified assailants shot and killed a senior commander of the banned Hizbul Mujahideen in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
The details surrounding these killings remain unclear, and no group has claimed responsibility for these acts, adding to the mysterious nature of these incidents.(CNI) Current News of India
