MULTAN: The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of the Punjab Police raided a militant hideout and killed six suspected members of the proscribed Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, the group that has launched a new campaign of violence in the country, police said on Thursday.

The CTD said its officers surrounded a hideout of the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a breakaway faction of the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), in Multan late on Wednesday and ordered the suspects inside to surrender. "But the terrorists started firing at the raiding party and threw explosives," a spokesman for the department, who the unit does not identify for security reasons, said in a statement. Six militants were killed while three or four escaped under cover of darkness, the department added.
