A Pakistani anti-terrorism official said on Monday that a group of five terrorists were arrested in the country’s southern Sindh province.
Omer Shahid Hamid, deputy inspector general of the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD), Sindh, told a press conference in the provincial capital of Karachi that the arrested terrorists belonged to the outlawed Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), and they had planned an attack on a police training center in Karachi.
Hamid said that the CTD personnel and the intelligence unit of the paramilitary force Rangers conducted a joint raid and arrested the five terrorists, including two suicide bombers, in Sindh’s Jamshoro area.
The official said suicide jackets with detonators, grenades, guns, the police uniform and a map of the police center which they planned to attack were seized in the joint operation.
According to a CTD statement, the arrested terrorists were involved in various incidents of terrorism in the country’s eastern Punjab and northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.
