The police also recovered two suicide jackets and electric goods from their possession.

The suspects were arrested from Swabi Road, Mardan and were later shifted to an unknown place for further investigation.

Earlier in March, three people, including two lady health workers, were killed when unidentified assailants opened fire at a polio team near an Afghan refugee camp on the outskirts of Mansehra city.
