What happened on Friday night at Sohrab Goth?

In this mildly investigative piece Waqar Bhatti all but does not say that the five alleged Baitallah Mahsud accomplices were 'brought' here to be killed in cold blood. My questions would be:

1: Who handed them over to the cops
2: What were their motives?
3: Were they opponents of Mahsud or TTP or were they local businessman who have settled in Karachi and do not want the TTP encroaching on their turf?


The killing of five suspects in an alleged police encounter late Friday night on Super Highway near Sohrab Goth has raised several serious questions regarding the police claim of a crackdown on associates of Baitullah Mehsud from the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Many people, especially residents of the area, described it as an “engineered encounter” and an act of “extrajudicial killing”.In the alleged encounter, not a single policeman sustained even a minor bullet injury. They, however, managed to gun down five trained militants who had extremely sophisticated and lethal weaponry.
