Several gangs in Rajanpur have united under the banned militant group BLA to take revenge for the terrorist death.

As per a senior police officer police already started preparing strategies to deal with them.
In violent skirmishes late on Wednesday, the criminals spent more than five hours launching rocket launchers, mortars, and other weapons against the under-resourced police force in response to which police also opened fire that resulted in the killing of proclaimed offender and leader of the gang Khuda Bukhsh Lound.
