DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Dera Ismail Khan police foiled a terrorism attempt in the area by arresting three terrorists on Friday, ahead of Muharram.

During the search operation, police recovered a suicide jacket and weapons from the terrorists' possession. The police also arrested seven suspects in a search operation being conducted in the city and its suburbs to stop the miscreants from disrupting the peace of the area.

Three of alleged terrorists have been shifted to an unknown location for interrogation. The seven suspects arrested during the search operation belong to South Waziristan.

Stringent security measures are being adopted in other parts of the country for Muharram. In Gilgit, two bomb disposal squads are being provided to the government before Muharram starts to prevent any untoward incident. Similarly, pillion riding has been banned in Karachi. Law enforcement authorities are taking strict measures to ensure peace in all parts of the country.
