KARACHI: One of the two alleged terrorists who were killed in a motorcycle explosion on Tuesday last week were identified by police, who said they had found an identity card they claim may belong to one of the ‘militants’. The man is identified as Irfan and belong to Waziristan. It has not yet been disclosed to whether he was from North or South Waziristan tribal agencies. In a related development, officials of law enforcement agencies are said to have detained five more men, including one imam of a mosque. Although neither of the accused have yet been charged, they are reportedly being questioned for their links to banned militant organisations.
