When the firing stopped, the teams searched the location and found terrorist named Hayat Mohammad aka Salman dead. The killed terrorist was wanted by the CTD for over a dozen terrorism-related cases. During the body search, a fake CNIC card in the name of Abdul Khaliq s/o Behram Khan was found in the pocket of the killed terrorist.
