TIMERGARA: Security forces recovered a huge cache of arms and explosives along with uniforms of the Pakistan Army and Afghan National Army during a search operation in Lower Dir on Sunday.

Colonel Maqsood told the media that security forces had arrested two suspects in Tehsil Maidan who revealed the location of the hidden cache of arms and ammunition.

The cache included nine mines, seven hand grenades, three kilogrammes of explosives, 46 fuse, six detonators, four explosive boxes, one AK-47, one 7mm gun and a China-made assault rifle, said the police.

The recovered weapons were found dumped in several fields and houses, the colonel said.

He appreciated the locals of the area for cooperating with security forces in curbing militancy.

@Mohammad Ali Siddiqui: @Candid 1:

You cannot be more precise and correct. This is definitely a case of foreign involvement and the politicians are unable to reveal / disclose the nature of the militants' incursion into our country's sensitive areas. Why? No backbone to deal with any national problem. No prevision and independence.

The strategic assets live on the edge and have the propensity to fall off and sleep with the enemy (India, Israel, USA, and Europe) not to forget our own political parties like PMLN, JUIF, JI and others. We are just getting what we nurtured in the past and a complete resolution of our policies for national salvation is what is required. Topping is education and self-reliance.

Mr. Rehman Malik's nonchalant approach to face terrorism gives the impression that five years have been decisively lost and the Chief Minister Sindh's claim that all is well in Karachi is nothing short of being overblown and counting stars in sunshine.

Frankly, the only hope is in the Apex Court and the armed forces, with a pinch of salt, in dealing with the present imbroglio that is haunting Pakistan. Pray it does not get intractable.
