Has Uzair Baloch been released with a clean chit?
This is now 3 times the same news is posted.

Reason is it has 3 keywords

1. ISIS
2. Karachi
3. Omar and Khalid

This in a country which cannot tell its citizens that it supports Bashar al Assad.

The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Sindh Police on Monday claimed to have arrested a student of Karachi's NED University of Engineering and Technology over charges of "international terror financing".

The CTD arrested Hafiz Mohammed Omer bin Khalid over international terror financing charges when he was trying to flee the city,” CTD DIG Omar Shahid Hamid told a press conference at his office. According to Hamid, the held suspect is a final year student at the varsity.

“He was involved in sending money to families of militants linked with the global [militant] Islamic State group in Syria,” said the officer. According to the CTD, Khalid used to provide cash to an associate, named Zia, in Hyderabad, who converted it into dollars before sending it to Syria. He has sent over Rs.1 million so far, said Hamid.

Speaking about the investigation, DIG Hamid said the CTD had received information that some people were collecting funds from Pakistan, which were being sent to IS militants in Syria through various means. Acting on a tip-off, police detained the said suspect and seized two mobile phones from his possession on December 17, 2020.


At the time, however, the suspect was released on bail as the CTD had no "concrete evidence" against him. Meanwhile, the seized cell phones were sent to the CTD’s technical division for forensic analysis, which reported its findings on January 11.

According to the forensic report, the suspect was found to have links with persons who collected funds from Pakistan and sent them to IS militants in Syria. The report also established that he was in direct contact with suspected terrorists in Pakistan and Syria through their families.

During the press conference, DIG Hamid said that Khalid received money from unknown persons in Pakistan through a mobile payments service who had links with the families of the IS militants in Syria. Subsequently, he transferred the funds to Zia in Hyderabad — also through the mobile transaction service — who then converted them into dollars and transferred the same through Bitcoin crypto-currency to the families of militants in Syria.

This activity had been going on for the last two years, said Hamid, adding that the CTD registered a First Information Report against Khalid and other unidentified suspects on Jan 11 and started further investigations.


Khalid had allegedly gone underground and was trying to flee the city via train when he was arrested at the Cantt Station in Karachi.

Another CTD officer, Raja Umer Khattab, said that Khalid was an associate of another suspect, Saad, who had links with Al Qaeda. He was influenced by his friend to join the militant group.

Saad has been missing for the last few years, said Khattab, adding that "jihadi families" in Syria had established Twitter accounts through which they demanded funds. He added that different social media apps were being used for coordination.

According to Khattab, most of the families that had travelled to Syria were from Punjab, particularly Lahore. He said women were being used to generate funds for the militants.

Meanwhile, DIG Hamid told Dawn that the families of militants in Syria were reportedly Pakistani women who had gone there and married IS militants. They were in touch with the militants in Pakistan and seeking funds from here.

Another reason for eliminating physical cash.
'Khalid received money from unknown persons in Pakistan through a mobile payments service who had links with the families of the IS militants in Syria.

Sir it was all dealt in digital currency, back and forth.

KARACHI: The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) has made progress in terror funding to Da’aish in Syria, ARY News reported on Wednesday.


A terror suspect, Umar bin Khalid, arrested by the CTD of Sindh Police in Karachi, has made sensational disclosures while being questioned by the law enforcement officials.

Umar bin Khalid disclosed that he was providing funds to four Pakistani women who went to Syria and joined Da’aish, with bitcoin.

“All four women, who joined the terrorist group in Syria, have been natives of Lahore,” arrested man told investigators.

“A youth staying in UK is also part of the terror funding network,” arrested terrorist disclosed.
The Counter Terrorism Department has wrote a letter to the I.G. Sindh Police for seeking mutual legal assistance from the UK as well as Syria to further inquire into the terror funding case.

The arrested suspect has been student of an engineering university in Karachi, officials said.

“After a forensic analysis of Khalid’s mobile phones, we came to know that he had links with the terror outfit and was sending money to Syria,” Omer Shahid Hamid, deputy inspector general of the Counter-Terrorism Department of Sindh Police, had earlier said. “Khalid used to send cash to an accomplice in Hyderabad, who used to send the money to Syria through bitcoins.”

Hamid said that so far, Khalid had sent more than a million Pakistani rupees.

Na dil dukha bhai... :/
The thought that you can control a culprit/corrupt person to your favour/desire to curb the'anti state' opposition always backfired. Be it MLN (1985), MQM or the NROs given in 2002. Musharraf thought he could control now as PPP and MLN are out of arena. They came back, with all cases pardoned and looted more.

ppp or zardari is smart mfer he dint only loot himself he gifted sindhs land to faujis and became their partner in crime against Pakistan and Pakistanis!!

it might be a coincidence but khi operation started after launching of bahria town and Dha city they had to show to the people that super highway is cleared now and they should buy land in zardaris and faujis project even now khi is garbage and no one is willing to fix it but look at bahria and dha city they dont look like part of Pakistan and soonay peh shuga to make these huge small cities easily accessible fwo and ppp started Malir expressway project matlab ab full concentration bahria aur dha peh and in few years the whole land grabbing scheme of zardari (in bahria) and fauji (dha city both sides of hw) will become legal and they will make serious money!!

and just to see how above the law fauji boys are they first built a tatti poti moterway and now they have almost finish exit to make access to dha easier!!

kamal hai bhai!

commerce above country! aur hum desh keh gaddar!
