NOWSHERA: More than a dozen of militants stormed the Malangi police check-post in Nowshera late on Wednesday evening.

A senior investigative police official while talking to The Express Tribune said that the check-post had come under attack from militants in the evening. Police retaliated and were exchanging fire with militants.

The official added that just as a police party returned to the check-post from a patrol along the boundary of the troubled Darra Adam Khel area in FR Kohat, militants opened fire at them.

However, none of the personnel sustained injuries.

The official added that police personnel were retaliating to the attack and have sought assistance from the Nowshera Kalan police station. The official added that he had accompanied a heavy contingent of police to the area.

“Heavy exchange of gunfire from both the sides continue for 30 minutes.”

Till the filing of the report, the militants had been pushed back and the police had managed to launch a search operation in the area.

@Behari Kebab: And of course you can provide credible references to support your comment that theses militants are agents of India or some other "foreign hand"! NOT! Why is everything about Pakistan somehow related to grand conspiracy theories?

@Maria: Mirza was just being cynical I guess. No need to get upset.
