Pakistan's top Taliban hunter, a controversial police officer who survived several previous assassination attempts, was killed by a Taliban car bomb in the southern city of Karachi on Thursday, police said. Superintendent Chaudhry Aslam, dubbed “Pakistan’s toughest cop” was well known throughout the country for his aggressive pursuit of criminals and Islamic militants alike. Aslam was killed, along with three other police officers, when a car packed with explosives rammed into his vehicle. Pakistan’s Taliban hailed his death as a “huge victory,” but there was a massive outcry across the country at the news. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the attack and vowed to investigate.
