Karachi, Dec. 24 (ANI) : Scores of militants belonging to the banned terror organisation, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LJ) have entered Karachi to wreak havoc in the city during Muharram, police officials have said.

According to the officials, the militants who, until now, were fighting in the tribal areas of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and Waziristan have now sneaked into Karachi to evoke sectarian violence in the commercial capital.

"They plan to carry out suicide bombings and target killings. These terrorists want to show their strength to the law enforcers and intelligence agencies, and they also want to take revenge of the killings of their leaders and workers in the last couple of months in the city," The Daily Times quoted a senior police official, as saying.

It is believed that the prime target of the terrorists would be the main processions held in various parts of the city during the first ten days of Muharram. (ANI)
