Pakistan gangster Uzair Baloch denies all

Baloch was nailed in 2017 by Pakistan's Army after he was accused of espionage and leaking information to Iran. The Army handed him over to the police in April.
Uzair Baloch, who has been accused of committing 198 murders during the Lyari gang war, has denied all. "I swear to God, I did not kill anyone," Baloch said in court. More than 16 cases, including the murder of gangster Arshad Pappu, who killed Baloch's father, were heard by the court. The Karachi crime lord was a key figure in the notorious gang war in his hometown of Lyari. The hearing has been adjourned.
In a statement he now denies, Baloch confessed to crimes such as murder, extortion, encroaching on land, illegally occupying 14 sugar mills, harassing residents and arms trading.
