Army takes custody of Uzair Baloch on espionage charges

Pakistan Army has taken custody of infamous Lyari gangster Uzair Baloch on charges of espionage, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) confirmed late Tuesday, after nearly 15 months of his detention with different law enforcement agencies following his arrest in January 2016.

Baloch was apprehended by Rangers from the outskirts of Karachi on January 30, 2016, while he was attempting to sneak into the city. He had fled the country following the launch of an operation in the megapolis against criminal elements back in 2013.

Director-General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor confirmed via Twitter that the Army has taken custody of Baloch for leaking “sensitive security information to foreign intelligence agencies.”
