KARACHI: Two policemen were killed after their vehicle came under attack by unidentified assailants here on Friday, police said.

The cops were on their way back after acquiring remand of two accused - Imtiaz rind and Khalid alias Bangali - from a court, officials said. The assailants, who were awaiting the police team, ambushed the vehicle as it appeared on Korangi Causeway.

The incident resulted in killing of two cops, while the attackers managed a clean getaway from the scene after getting their accomplices freed.

This correspondent has learnt that the under custody accused were also freed in the ambush, were also charged with the murder of a policeman.

The killing of law enforcers has remained to be a common occurring in the past, but it came down with the overall crime as the law enforcement agencies (LEAs), backed by political leadership, launched a crackdown on terrorists and criminals in the megapolis in late 2013.

There has since been a drastic decrease in crimes across Karachi, a city that is home to over 20 million.

Yet scattered attacks like these still take place in the city, but not as often as they occurred in the past.
