In the ongoing operation in Karachi a total of 138 police officers have been killed so far this year, the Sindh police revealed on Thursday.
Among the officers are two deputy superintendents of police, three inspectors, 13 sub-inspectors, 16 assistant sub-inspectors, 26 head constables and 78 constables, Express News reported.

The Sindh police spokesperson stated that most of the officers were being killed in the District West area.

District West was abolished in 2000 and divided into four towns namely Kemari Town, SITE Town, Baldia Town and Orangi Town. On 11th July 2011 Sindh Government restored the district again.

Targeted operation
The targeted operation started in Karachi after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited the metropolitan and devised a strategy to curb violence.

With the provincial government on board, the prime minister gave a go-ahead to Rangers to conduct raids and arrest criminals with the help of the police.

The targeted operation began on September 7 and since then hundreds of suspects have been arrested.

The Rangers are leading the operation which, they claim, is being conducted across the city – not just in the political strongholds of one party.
