PESHAWAR: A police van came under a gun attack on Sufi Dheri road in Peshawar late on Friday night, leaving three policemen injured. Two suspected militants were also killed in the exchange of fire.

The van was on a routine patrol within the the limits of Pishtakhara police station when it came under attack. Officials fired back at the assailants, killing them.

The injured officers, including patrol in-charge Jamal Shah, were rushed to the Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) for treatment where doctors said that their condition was stable.
