8The Special Investigation Unit has arrested the chief of Karachi chapter of banned terrorist outfit Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LeJ) from Hub, 25 kilometres from the provincial capital, on Tuesday, SSP SIU Farooq Awan told Dawn newspaper.

Speaking on the arrested suspected militant, Tariq Shafi alias Doctor, SSP Awan said Shafi “is a known terrorist” and was wanted in 14 cases pertaining to sectarian killings, in which eight people were killed.

Shafi is also a suspect in the murder of college principal, Professor Sibte Jafar, and is listed as absconding in the case, Awan said.

A former head constable in police telecommunication wing in 2001, Shafi was later dismissed from his duties and arrested on charges of involvement in sectarian attacks. He was released in 2008.

The information on Shafi came through after a former LeJ Karachi chief, Hafiz Qasim Rasheed, was arrested in 2012.
