By Zia Ur Rehman

KARACHI -- Sindh Police Thursday (February 28) killed two "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) leaders in a shootout in Dhadar, Balochistan Province. The Sindh officers had authorisation to operate in the neighbouring province.

The dead militants were Abdullah Brohi and Hafeez Pindrani, said Irfan Ali Baloch, police chief of Larkana city, Sindh Province.

"Brohi was the ISIS chief for Sindh Province, while Pindrani masterminded a number of terror attacks, including the February 2017 attack on the Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine [in Sehwan] and the attacks on the Shia community in Shikarpur District," Baloch told Pakistan Forward.

Sindh Province Police Chief Dr. Syed Kaleem Imam Thursday announced an Rs. 2 million ($14,378) reward for the police team that killed the two insurgents.
