Security forces recover cache of weapons
Security forces reportedly foiled a terror bid by seizing cache of arms and ammunition close to Pak-Afghan border in Killa Saifullah district.
Frontier Corps conducted a raid in Murgha Faqirzai area of Killa Saifullah on information provided by the intelligence agencies, the FC Spokesman said.
The weapons recovered during the operation include an anti tank mine, 9 improvised explosive devices, 2 RPGs, 2 rifles and other weapons.
The FC claimed that the weapons were dumped by a banned militant organisation to carry out subversive activities in Balochistan.
The official further said that weapons were being smuggled into interior Balochistan to carry out terrorist activities. “Terror bid has been foiled”, he claimed.
The miscreants, however, had fled the spot before the arrival of security forces.
Murgha Faqirzai is considered to be one of the sensitive areas of Killa Saifullah, sharing borders with neighboring Afghanistan.
Few months back, polio workers were also kidnapped from the same area.
Elsewhere, two security personnel were injured in a blast near security forces’ vehicle in Parom area of Panjgur district.
The injured personnel were shifted to Panjgur hospital for medical treatment.
