KARACHI: Police intercepted and apprehended a truck laden with weapons and ammunition on the Super Highway, that was allegedly intended for terrorist activities at Yaum-e-Ali, reported Express News.


SSP South Nasir Aftab said that the police had been tipped off that a truck was bringing arms and ammunition from Mardan to Karachi.

Subsequently, his team conducted a search operation on Super Highway to catch suspected truck and recovered a large amount of ammunition, including six sub-machine guns, one light machine gun and thousands of bullets, belts, butts, daggers and other arms.

No explosive material was to be found on board, though.

The weapons were hidden in wooden sections specially constructed for the purpose in the upper compartments of the truck. The vehicle was otherwise found to be empty.

Aftab further said that the police had arrested two suspects.

I always though that bullet is explosive. Why the arrested persons are suspects but not criminals or terrorists? Our police needs to deal with the terrorists with an iron fist to control the worsening situation in Pakistan. Congratulations to Karachi police for a successful operation!
