Rawalpindi—Six terrorists were apprehended along with a cache of arms and ammunition during a combing operation in Kallar Syedan and Gujar Khan areas of Rawalpindi district on Thursday.
Among the notorious arrested are two militant commanders. Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) were recovered from their possession.
Combing operations, underway across the country, are the latest initiative of the army against ‘terrorists’ and terrorist sleeper cells.
A day after the horrific militant attack in Quetta which left over 70 people dead, the Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif had instructed corps commanders and intelligence agencies to further intensify combing and targeted operations with the aim to eliminate terrorists and their sleeper cells.
