Gulzar Imam was instrumental in the formation of Baloch Raji Aajoi Sangar and remained its operational head. His visits to Afghanistan and India are also on record, his linkages with hostile intelligence agencies are being investigated. The hostile intelligence agencies reportedly also tried to exploit him to work against the state of Pakistan and its national interests.

The terrorist was apprehended after an innovatively conceived, carefully planned, and meticulously executed operation, that spanned months over various geographical locations. His arrest is a serious blow to Baloch National Army as well as other militant groups, which have been attempting to destabilize the hard-earned peace in Balochistan.

Apprehension of a militant leader of this stature demonstrates the capability and resolve of law enforcement agencies to uproot the menace of terrorism as well as speaks volumes about the successes garnered through the supreme sacrifices of unsung heroes.
