Islamabad police’s anti-car lifting cell recovered gas cylinders containing around 80 kilogrammes of chemicals that could be used as high-intensity explosives.

The powdered chemicals, aluminum perchlorate, were concealed in 10 cylinders, the size and shape of fire extinguishers. Police officials recovered the cylinders from two different cars from the outskirts of the capital.

The cars were later found to be stolen and two suspects arrested were identified as professional carjackers with a criminal record in various police stations in the twin cities.

Police officials interrogating the suspects said some terrorist group was using the explosives and could be planning to bomb some sensitive installation in the twin cities.

“It appears that some people were bringing explosives into the city and were using carjackers to transport them,” said a police officer.
