KHUZDAR: The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) has arrested three suspected terrorists belonging to a banned outfit in an operation conducted in an area on the outskirts of Khuzdar, officials said here on Saturday.

They said acting on a tip-off about the presence of some terrorists in the area, personnel of the CTD Kalat Range and other security forces jointly raided a hideout of the banned organisation late on Friday night. They cordoned off the area and arrested the three suspected terrorists.
