Police ambushed during operation

MIRPURKHAS: A strong contingent of police led by a DSP came under attack by a gang of dacoits during an operation to arrest its ringleader and members in the Phuladiyoon area on Wednesday. One policeman received gunshot wounds in what was described as the ambush.

An FIR was registered at the Phuladiyoon police station on behalf of the state against Noor Mohammed Marri, Mubarak Marri and Abo Marri.

It said that a contingent comprising personnel from the Phuladiyoon, Sindhri and Dilber Maher police stations was ambushed during a hunt for the wanted suspects and their associates in Jumma Marri village, an area surrounded by thick woods. It said that one policeman, Deedar Abro, sustained bullet wounds in the ambush. The attack triggered a gun battle but the gangsters managed to disappear in the forest, it added.

The Sindhri DSP, who led the police contingent, said that the operation was planned on a credible tip-off about the presence of the wanted outlaws in the area.
