KOHLU/RAWALPINDI: Under the ongoing Operation Raddul Fasaad, intelligence agencies and security forces conducted raids and seized weapons from Balochistan's Kohlu district.

In a press conference, Kohlu Deputy Commissioner Agha Nabil said that the security forces raided Makhi Nala area of Kahan. "During the raid, weapons and ammunition were seized from the hideouts, belonging to proscribed organisations," said Nabil.

"Three hand grenades, seven anti-tank mines, 477 LMG rounds, one kilogramme of explosive material, rifles, machine guns, detonator, five RPG-7 fuses, 400 yards of detonator cable and other weapons were recovered," he said.

In another raid, a vehicle that was going to be used as vehicle-borne IED was seized during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) from Tore Shah, North of Pishin. It was going to be used to disrupt Muharram in Quetta. Three suspects were arrested.

Separately, Pakistan Rangers Punjab and police carried out patrolling/flag marches in important areas of major cities. ISPR said that extensive intelligence based operations were carried out in Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Multan, DG Khan, Lahore, Sialkot, Bahawalnagar, Bahawalpur and Rahim Yar Khan. During these operations, 27 suspects were arrested and a cache of illegal weapons was seized. The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) arrested four suspected terrorists from Multan, seizing a sizeable quantity of arms and explosives from them.

The CTD conducted a raid on a tip-off and arrested four activists of banned outfit, who were identified as Nasir, Ali, Tahir and Shafqat. The CTD also claimed to have seized six hand grenades, two pistols, one IED, two kilogrammes of explosives, three-meter detonating cord, eight-meter safety, and 10 detonators from the suspects.
