    He was wanted for a June 2004 attack on the then most senior army general in Karachi which left 11 people dead, including seven soldiers, though the general survived.

    Turi was also sought for an attack the previous month when two car bombs exploded outside the privately run Pakistan American Cultural Centre, killing a police guard and wounding more than 30 Pakistanis.

    Police said Turi was injured in the raid and died in hospital.
     
    Officials said the wanted man had a one million rupees ($16,200) bounty on his head.
