The accused were found with 11 pistols, 22 magazines, and a weapon punch tool, according to a Sindh Rangers spokesperson. During the preliminary inquiry, the accused admitted that they sold guns on numerous social media platforms.

Furthermore, the spokesperson said that the accused were illegally importing weaponry from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to other towns in Sindh and Punjab using passenger buses.

The spokesperson also said that the suspects are habitual offenders who have previously served time in prison. The arrested suspects, as well as the recovered weaponry and ammunition, were handed over to the police for further investigation.

People should report such elements to the nearest Rangers check post, Rangers helpline 1101, or Rangers WhatsApp number 03479001111 by calling or sending an SMS. The authorities promised that in such a scenario, the identity of the informant will remain unknown.

Weapon smuggling has surged in the recent era which is not good for a country like Pakistan who is already on the grey list of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). Therefore, the government of Pakistan along with the law enforcement agencies should take stringent action to curb this menace.
