PESHAWAR: At least 76  suspects including two Afghan nationals were arrested on Friday in Peshawar, Express News reported.

The law enforcement agencies carried out a raid in areas of Hayatabad and recovered six pistols, eight Kalashnikovs and 300 live cartridges during the operation.

On March 11, around four militants and one policeman were also killed during a four-hour shootout in Peshawar.

Heavily armed militants attacked local police in the Shawa area of Swabi district, occupying a house and trading fire with officers for nearly four hours, district police chief Muhammad Saeed Khan told AFP.

    Oh! these militants don’t belong to MQM, therefore, no mention of their political/religious affiliation is required.

    Please concentrate on MQM only, so that we can create another disloyal group as we have created in Bangladesh and then blame on India / USA / IsraelRecommend
