The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) has foiled a major terrorism bid in Khuzdar, Balochistan, and seized 10 hand grenades from a passenger van. According to source, CTD personnel raided a passenger van on a tip-off at the National Highway in Khuzdar and recovered 10 hand grenades from two passengers going to Khuzdar from Quetta.
The hand grenades were hidden in a tyre loaded in the van and were transported to be used in terrorist activities in the province, said sources. In a separate action, earlier this month, Pakistan Levies had foiled a major terrorism bid in Khuzdar.
According to DC Khuzdar Wali Muhammad Lehri, the Levies force recovered 88kg of explosives material from a vehicle at Zawah check-post in Khuzdar. Two suspects were also taken into custody.—INP
