BOLAN: At least four armed men were killed Monday during a search operation carried out by Frontier Corps (FC) personnel in Balochistan’s Bolan district, DawnNews reported.

Upon receiving information on the whereabouts of suspected militants, FC personnel conducted the operation in Bolan during which 10 men were also arrested.

During the raid, an exchange of fire took place between militants and security personnel. Subsequently, four militants were killed, according to FC sources.

Moreover, 22 kilograms of explosives, ammunition and other weapons were recovered during the operation.

The clash between FC personnel and miscreants was still in progress and the area’s entry and exit points were also sealed.

Meanwhile, additional security men were summoned to the area to tackle the militants.

Earlier last week, separatist militants killed 14 people, including three security officers, after stopping vehicles at a fake checkpoint in the Mach area of Bolan district.

The attack appeared to have targeted mostly people from the central province of Punjab.
