KARACHI: Karachi Police have registered a criminal case against the unidentified terrorists that attacked PNS Mehran late Sunday night. However, contrary to earlier statements by the PN chief, the FIR puts the number of terrorists between 10 and12.

Navy chief Admiral Nauman Bashir had earlier claimed in his press conference that all terrorists had been killed.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik too had maintained that four of the terrorists had been killed while two had managed to escape. This effectively puts the number of attackers to be no more than six.

The FIR has been registered at the Shahrah-e-Faisal police station.

The FIR contains the statement of Lt Irfan claiming between 10 to 12 terrorists had scaled the eastern wall to infiltrate the base.

The FIR also states that 10 security personnel and four terrorists were killed in the attack. While the FIR makes no mention of what happened to the other accused listed in the FIR.

The FIR states four Kalashnikovs, ten grenades, two suicide jackets, one rocket launcher and a lot of ammunition was seized.

The bodies of the terrorists have been sent to Jinnah Hospital where an autopsy has been conducted. The report will be issued in a few days.
