A CTD official said that the law enforcement agency personnel carried out a search operation in Tall Tehsil over the presence of terrorists in the area. However, when the CTD teams reached the spot, the militants opened fire on them.

He added that when the CTD officials returned fire, four militants were killed while their accomplices managed to escape.

The terrorists were wanted in cases of terrorism, extortion, and targeted killing of police personnel. Four submachine guns, and other arms and ammunition were seized from their possession.
