A gang of seven people, the ‘White Corolla Gang’ is known by this name because they come in a white Corolla, armed with Kalashnikov rifles and follow people from banks and money exchanges to their homes and rob them there.
Malir Senior Superintendent of Police Irfan Bahadur said that they arrested a suspect named Sadiq, the alleged ringleader of this gang. Several cases have already been filed against Sadiq at several police stations, including the CTD police station.
Sadiq used to target people who were leaving banks or money exchanges. He was also a drug supplier and had over five kilogrammes of drugs and several mobile phones in his possession, which the police took into their custody.
The SSP Malir said that Sadiq’s accomplice had been arrested earlier.
