Khamra fell into the police net in 2018. During interrogation it came to fore that he had looted and killed 34 truck drivers. Initially, he was arrested in connection with two bodies found in Bilkhiria but Khamra’s case made it to national headlines after he revealed one by one the number of murders he was involved in.
