“At least three of our personnel were martyred and three others were wounded in the bombing,” paramilitary official, Colonel Maqbool Ahmed, told AFP.

Senior police official Hamid Shakeel confirmed the bombing and said at least seven civilians were also wounded in the attack.

    The choice is between Habeas corpus of terrorists and security of general public. Both cannot go hand in hand. Time has come for ruthless elimination of all types of terrorists, whether religious, ethnic, judicial or political.
