4 alleged terrorists killed in operation in Pishin​

Separately, four alleged terrorists belonging to the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were killed in an exchange of fire during an operation conducted by the Quetta CTD in Balochistan’s Pishin on Tuesday.

A statement issued by the Balochistan CTD said the Quetta CTD received information from a credible source that “notorious TTP sharpshooter” Shakar Din alias Umar Khalid, along with his other associates, was “spotted at a hideout in Surkhab Muhajir Camp in Pishin, and he fully armed, in preparation of another terrorist attack”.

The statement identified Din’s associates as Ahmadullah, Aminullah and an Afghan citizen, Abdul Fateh. It added that they had been involved in various terrorist activities as part of the TTP and at the behest of Pir Ainuz Zaman Akhunzada.

After receiving information about their hideout, the Quetta CTD deputed a specialised combat team to Surkhab that cordoned off the area where the hideout was located and asked the terrorists to surrender, the statement said.

It added that the terrorists opened indiscriminate fire on the CTD team, following which a shootout ensued.

“The CTD team took precautions and returned fire. When the firing stopped, four terrorists were found dead.”

The statement said assault rifles and pistols with live rounds, hand grenades and a bike were seized from the terrorists.

According to the CTD, the slain militants were involved in the target killing of a CTD Officer in Pishin, the facilitation and transportation of explosive materials, the facilitation of collection of funds for the TTP and an alleged armed combat with Frontier Constabulary border troops during an attempt to infiltrate the Pak-Afghan border near Speen Taza Gulistan in April this year.

It said a case was being registered at the Quetta CTD police station and an “investigation has been launched to arrest the remaining members of the network”.

“More raids are planned for other areas of Balochistan,” it added.

At least four terrorists were killed during a shootout between armed gunmen and Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) personnel in Balochistan’s Kech district on Thursday, police said.

In a press release, the CTD said it received information about the presence of terrorists near Pasni Road in Kech district.

Upon reaching the location, law enforcement personnel encountered resistance as seven to eight terrorists engaged in gunfire with the forces, the statement said.

The CTD said RPGs and hand grenades were fired by the terrorists during the encounter.

“Later, terrorists tried to flee the scene but the CTD team followed them in hot pursuit. Four terrorists were killed and several others managed to escape using the cover of night,” it added.

According to the statement, the security forces recovered a cache of weapons, including pistols, grenades, an improvised explosive device (IED)-fitted motorbike, and other arms during the operation.

The bodies of the four terrorists were sent to Teaching Hospital Turbat for legal formalities, the CTD said, adding that further investigation was underway.

The Counter Terrorism Department and various law enforcement agencies have been actively engaged in Balochistan and neighbouring areas, undertaking intelligence-based operations to locate and eradicate terrorist elements.

In one such action in September, the CTD conducted an operation in the Aghberg area of Quetta, resulting in the elimination of five individuals identified as alleged terrorists associated with the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

Pakistan has witnessed an uptick in terror activities in recent months, especially in KP and Balochistan, after the TTP ended its ceasefire with the government in November last year.

A day earlier, eight people, including two security personnel and six civilians, were martyred while several others sustained injuries in a string of blasts in North Waziristan, South Waziristan and Bajaur.

In September, data compiled by the Pakistan Institute for Conflict and Security Studies (PICSS) said the number of militant attacks in August was the highest tally for monthly strikes in almost nine years.
