TTP militant apprehended in Bannu - ISPR
ISLAMABAD: In an information-based operation (IBO) Security Forces near Sarai Naurang in Bannu arrested a Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) militant on Friday morning, said a statement issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The ISPR statement added that the militant commander Rasool Khan was involved in terrorist activities across the province and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata).
Security forces also recovered three fake passports, 100 Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs) and a cache of arms from the terrorist's possession.
An increase in the number of operations displays commitment to the implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP) which was launched by the government in the wake of the deadly attack on Peshawar's Army Public School last year to eliminate the scourge of terrorism from the country.
Earlier this year, security agencies conducted 9,413 operations in Punjab, 1,577 in Sindh, 2,724 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), 39 in Balochistan, 336 in Islamabad, 720 in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), 21 in Gilgit-Baltiststan (GB) and 56 in FATA
In addition, 1,934 suspects have been arrested from Punjab, 1,533 from Sindh, 6,038 from KP, 460 from Balochistan, 505 from Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT), seven from AJK, 10 from GB and 129 from FATA.
