Three militants of the banned terror outfit, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have been gunned down in a police raid in Pakistan's restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, officials said on Thursday.

Based on intelligence, a counter-terrorism team of the police raided a compound in Shahpur area of Peshawar district on Wednesday night, they said.

The three terrorists were killed in an exchange of fire, while few others managed to escape, the police said.

The killed included wanted militant Hizbullah, the other two are yet to be identified, police said.

Search is on for the gunmen who escaped during the raid, officials said.
