KARACHI: Police foiled another terrorist attack on Shia “Imam Bargahs” during Muharram by arresting four suspected militants on Thursday, DawnNews reported.

Talking to media representatives, SP Aslam Khan claimed that the arrested were belonged to banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP.)

Suicide jackets, hand grenades, pistols and other weapons were recovered from the arrested suspects, said Khan.

It is important to mention that two scouts performing Muharram duty at the Numaish intersection on the city’s main M.A. Jinnah Road were killed and another injured in an attack on the first day of the holy month (November 27.)

At least eight people, including a reporter of Waqt television, were injured and a car, a van and around two dozen motorcycles were set ablaze by a large number of enraged people who had gathered at the place after the attack.

According to police, the attack took place when participants of a rally held by the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ), formerly Sipah-i-Sahaba Pakistan (now proscribed), at Regal Chowk had dispersed.
