RAJANPUR: More than 160 dacoits and miscreants backed by terror outfits and anti-state elements have been copped so far in security operation in Kacha Jamal area.
Inspector General (IG) Mushtaq Sukhera visited the troubled area and reviewed the ongoing operation.
Reportedly, few extremists were caught in possession of Indian weapons. Members of notorious Chotu gang are among the felons fighting the security personnel.
The security troops are challenged as the criminals have advanced weaponry including six anti-aircraft guns, Indian-made Vikras automatic and machine guns.
However, 1,600 personnel belonging to Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD), Rangers, army and Punjab Police have cleared around 70 percent Kacha area while more than 50 check posts have been established.
Law enforcement agencies have apprehended around a dozen of Indian agents in different operations recently from across the country.
The arrests were made on leaks given by Research and Analysis Wing’s (RAW) spy who was arrested from Balochistan around two weeks ago.
