Security forces foil terror bid in Balochistan’s Kohlu district

Updated March 18, 2017

Security forces on Saturday foiled a terror bid by seizing a significant quantity of arms and explosives in Balochistan’s Kohlu district.

“The Frontier Corps (FC) and personnel of a intelligence agency conducted a raid and recovered 28 kilograms of explosives, six rockets and other weapons,” said a security official.

The official added that the compound which was raided belonged to “miscreants of an outlawed militant organisation”.

No arrest was made during the raid.

In a separate incident, FC forces and personnel of an intelligence agency arrested four suspected militants during a raid in Quetta’s Smungli area.

Security forces claimed to have recovered five SMGs, three rockets and other weapons from their possession.
