The Counter-Terrorism Department arrested four suspected terrorists in an intelligence-based operation across the Punjab, a CTD spokesperson said on Saturday.
Four people were arrested in Lahore. “They were planning an attack on the law enforcement agencies,” the spokesperson said.
They belonged to a banned organisation. The police have seized a huge cache of explosives, ammunition, and weapons from their possession.
The suspects have been identified as Mamshali Khan, Abdul Rehman, Kashif, and Mansoor.
A case has been registered at the CTD police station. The police have moved them to an undisclosed location and have begun questioning them for details on other terrorist hideouts in the province.
On September 21, during a raid, the department arrested four al-Qaeda militants near Lahore’s Mohlanwal Road.
