DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Four policemen were arrested on Sunday for their negligent behaviour during an attack by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on the central jail in Dera Ismail Khan, DawnNews reported.

According to police sources, investigations revealed that the arrested officials namely Qaisar Khan, Sufaid Khan, Ateequr Rehman and Khan Bahadur were found guilty of negligence during the jailbreak.
