Six terrorists killed in Quetta gunbattle with CTD team
The CTD personnel also seized weapons and ammunition from the terrorists’ hideout located near Eastern Bypass of the provincial capital.
A day earlier, the Balochistan Counter-Terrorism Department had arrested four alleged terrorists from Kech during an operation. The operation was conducted after the forces had received a tip-off from one of their sources.
The suspects were the masterminds of a bomb explosion last year in Turbat. Two children were killed in the blast.
Also on Friday, two terrorists were killed in a gunbattle with a raiding team of the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) in Bannu region. On a tip-off, the CTD raiding party carried out an intelligence-based operation on Amirwanda Road within limits of Lakki Police Station.
The CTD team also seized two Kalashnikovs, six magazines, large number of cartridges, two identity cards, cash, a sack full of explosive material and other equipment from the hideout of the dead terrorists.
