District central police arrested a member of banned outfit Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LJ) accused of sectarian killings and targeting media personnel from Federal B Industrial Area on Thursday, police said.

According to Senior Superintendent Police (SSP)-Central Muqaddas Haider, the accused Muhammad Sarfraz was booked under sections 4 and 5 of the Explosives Act and section 23(1)A of the Sindh Arms Act

Two of Sarfraz's accomplices, Saqib and Naveed, were arrested by police earlier this year.

Sarfraz confessed he was involved in the killings of three media personnel, one Muttahida Qaumi Movement worker and four traffic police in addition to three sectarian killings, police said, adding that the earlier interrogations of Saqib and Naveed confirmed Sarfraz's confession.

Three suspected militants also belonging to LJ were killed in an encounter with security forces in Quetta's Sariab area on Thursday in a pre-dawn search operation.

Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif on a visit to Karachi last week reiterated that the Karachi operation is focused on the entire network of terrorists, their abettors and financiers, and will continue until peace is restored to the city.
