Three militants affiliated with banned organisations were arrested by the Frontier Corps (FC) in raids carried out in Quetta and Zhob, Balochistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
Two terrorists were arrested in the Killi Ismail area of Quetta while the third was rounded up in Gawal Ismal Zai, Zhob.
The raids come two days after a Balochistan Constabulary official was martyred in Quetta in the same area. Police said official Khuda Buksh was on the way to a mosque near his house when unidentified men opened fire on him.
On Thursday, two men including the son of a well-known Pashto poet Professor Dr Syal Khan Kakar were martyred in the provincial capital. Armed assailants shot and killed Aymal Khan Kakar and the watchman of the farm house in the Chashma Achuzai area.
Attacks on security forces by militants are not rare in Balochistan. The province has long been plagued by homegrown separatist insurgency and extremist violence which has left hundreds of people dead in the last couple of years.
