Gang wars attack each other with hand-grenades in Layari to scare traders. They used to lob hand grenades in the past; however, now the use of hand-grenades against law-enforcers has rung sirens for not only the law enforcers, but also the common citizens. The operational systems of police and Rangers to stop crime activities in Karachi are quite different. In Karachi three battalions of Rangers namely Sachal Rangers, Bhittai Rangers and Abdullah Shah Ghazi Rangers are working. It is a test for law-enforcers to find out those involved in these activities and decipher what sort of message they want to give.
