During General Musharraf's Martial Law.


KARACHI, Aug 22: After remaining three months and four days in the custody of police and intelligence agencies, high-profile gangster Abdul Rehman alias Rehman Dakait escaped from police custody early Tuesday morning, making it his second successful attempt. He was wanted in more than 150 cases. Earlier in 1997, Rehman had escaped while being taken to court. However, some top police officials were of the opinion that Rehman's escape was facilitated by certain quarters. Three police officials of the Kalri police station have been detained and a raid was carried out at the house of the SHO of Kalri police station, Bahauddin Babar, who was detained, a senior police official told Dawn on the condition of anonymity. A source said that two days back Rehman was shifted from the lockup of Kalri police station to a safe house in Nazimabad.

The former Sindh IG Jahangir Mirza acknowledged the arrest of gangster Rahman Dakait only after his retirement. He said the outlaw's arrest and subsequent escape was not brought to his knowledge while he was in office. KARACHI, May 9: People of the southern part of Lyari are looking to the authorities and law-enforcement agencies to bring about an abiding peace in the area which has suffered a gang war between two rival groups for almost four years. Although the intensity of the gang war has decreased because of various factors, the police have finally disbanded the Lyari Task Force formed in March 2005 with the stated aim of dealing with the criminals firmly. "The law and order situation in Lyari is now under control and the LTF had almost completed its task to contain the criminal activities and there was no need for its existence," Adviser to the Chief Minister on Home Affairs Wasim Akhtar told journalists some time back at a luncheon meeting at the Central Police Office. Sources in the Sindh police said that the Lyari Task Force was established as a reward to DSP Aslam Khan and his team as they had arrested underworld don Shoaib Khan in December 2004, who subsequently died in the Central Prison of Karachi in January 2005. DSP Aslam Khan was also promoted to the rank of superintendent of police.

But though the public curses the MQM for trying to do away with Rehman, Nadia Gabol, the MPA for MQM from Lyari, condemns the killing herself. "I live two minutes away from Rehman Baloch, and I have never had any problem with him, even though he supported the PPP. And let me make this clear, if Nabeel Gabol and Rafiq Engineer had not been supported by Rehman Baloch, they would never have won the seats." Nadia Gabol, the niece of Nabeel Gabol, says that no matter what anyone says, Lyari was definitely 'picking up'. "There was no firing at weddings, there was an abrupt drop in boys doing drugs in the lanes, there was 600 gallons of water being supplied to Lyari in one day. The roads were in a better condition, the man (Rehman Baloch) gave away ration during Ramzan. As far as his death is concerned, it was a shock to the people. I am sure he had it coming, but the way it came his way was unfair. Every one, innocent or guilty, deserves a fair trial. And MQM did not have anything to do with his death." Nabeel Gabol, MNA People's Party, said "Rehman was a notorious character and governor Sindh had also announced Rs1 million head money for him. To the questions of accusations that PPP was responsible for his killing and used him he said this was "baseless propaganda against him and his party." Today, though Lyari's reaction to Rehman's death has been unnaturally controlled and quiet, in spite of some aerial firing at his funeral, and the protest the families held at the Karachi Press Club, the general public in Lyari remembers him as a Robin Hood figure rather than a petty criminal. "He was the only one who did anything for us," cries an old man. "Each Ramzan he gave out food for us poor people. Now will the political parties promise to do what they have never done before?" he questions.
