ISLAMABAD: At least four terrorists and one security forces’ man were killed in a combing operation in Rajanpur, Inter-Services Public Relation (ISPR) said on Saturday.
Numerous absconders were apprehended from district Rajanpur’s Gayandari area with a heavy cache of arms and ammunition.
Gayandari is located on the border of Balochistan and Punjab.
“Operation against anti-state elements was in progress in mountainous tribal area of Rajanpur while arrests were also made in this regard,” a senior commandant of border military police said.
Rajanpur’s district police officer Irfanullah told Dawn that Punjab police was not a part of this operation and had no details on it.
In May this year, the military’s top brass approved a timeline and operational details of countrywide ‘combing operations’ against terrorists and militant groups at a Corps Commanders Conference at the General Headquarters.
