The security forces on Sunday claimed to have foiled a terrorism bid after they reportedly defused an improvised explosive device (IED) in Balochistan's Turbat area.

According to law enforcement officials, the miscreants had reportedly planted an IED on Turbat-Dasht road to disrupt the ongoing census process in the area.

The personnel of Frontier Corps, a paramilitary force, acted on a tip-off and timely defused the IED planted on the roadside. The FC personnel and other law enforcement agencies reached the spot as investigation into the incident went underway.

Security has been tightened in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan under the ongoing operation Raddul Fasad. Moreover, scores of miscreants have also been apprehended in various raids and major terror bids foiled under the operation.

Timely action saved lives of innocent people, the officials said.
