Eight terrorists arrested in Pak's Punjab province
In the wake of the recent wave of terror activities across Pakistan, particularly target killing of police officials, the Counter Terrorism Department of Punjab Police conducted extensive intelligence-based operations in the province during the last one week and interrogated 40 terror suspects, they said.
The arrested terrorists belong to Daesh (ISIS), Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Lashkar-e-Jhanghvi (LeJ) and Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) and were involved in various terror activities, including terror financing, the statement said, adding that weapons were recovered from their possession.
FIRs have been registered against them in different police stations and they are being interrogated to unearth their terror networks, the CTD said.
