The Counter-Terrorism Department Punjab (CTD) has arrested eight terrorists in various anti-terrorism operations in different cities of the province.
According to reports, CTD conducted operations in Lahore and Sargodha on intelligence received. Meanwhile, five terrorists were arrested from Lahore and three from Sargodha.
According to the Counter Terrorism Department spokesman, explosive materials, weapons and IEDs have been recovered from the arrested terrorists. The terrorists belong to the outlawed Al-Qaeda and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
Officials say that the terrorists were arrested during the investigation of 33 suspects. Investigation has been started by registering 5 cases against the said terrorists.
It should be noted that after the recent wave of terrorism in Pakistan, operations against anti-national elements and terrorists on the part of law enforcement agencies have accelerated.
Last week, the CTD claimed to have killed a suspected terrorist belonging to the banned TTP in an encounter and arrested 11 other members of the banned outfit during a search operation conducted in various districts on intelligence inputs. .
