PESHAWAR: Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) personnel on Monday defused a half-kilogram explosive device in Peshawar’s Hayatabad area.

Station House Officer (SHO) Riaz Ali Shah said the homemade bomb was planted in an empty plot along the road near the Hayatabad police station, DawnNews reported.

Upon receiving information about the bomb, security forces summoned BDS personnel to the area who successfully defused the explosive.

Another bomb was defused near a police check post in KP’s Charsadda district today.

The BDS defused the three kilogram explosive near the check post in the limits of the Saro Kalley police station in Charsadda’s town of Shabqadar.

SHO Saro Kalley police station Gul Shaid Khan said the pressure cooker bomb was planted on the Yaka Ghund Road which was defused once the police received information.

Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Charsadda lie close to Pakistan's troubled northwestern tribal region where troops have been locked for years in deadly battles with insurgents.

The cities have seen frequent attacks by militants in the past few years, with targets ranging from civilians to policemen and other law enforcement personnel.
